Name that grass

Or at least I think it is a grass. Located in NE GA Piedmont. Grows in open, full sun spaces with very poor soil. When crushed, it has a strong citrus scent. Blooms will be tiny and yellow.

Could be Hypericum gentianoides . That grows in parts of Georgia in similar conditions. I don't know about the crushed citrus smell though.

Hypericum gentianoides it is! Found great information on it at a Michigan State University site. It is growing in a granite outcrop with sandy, acidic soil. Thanks for the info... have looked for a long time. I love this site!!

Here is a link that might be useful: Hypericum gentianoides(L.) B.S.P. gentian-leaved St. Johnâs-wort
