I see this grass quite often here in c. Mississippi. I've no idea what it is, and am terrible at grass ID. It grows in shade and part shade, in upland soils in mixed hardwood & pine forests.

what is it? (hoping its native!)

more photos to follow.

One of my favorites, Chasmanthium sessiliflorum, longleaf woodoats. Deer don't bother it.

Brilliant! I was hoping that's what it was, although I've never seen a labeled or IDed specimen before. C. latifolium is one of my favorites.
