What's that plant? We get asked frequently about what's in these photos. Before you keep reading, do you know what it is?

Answer: Bahiagrass. A non-native grass, Bahiagrass was brought to Texas as a fodder plant for grazers and quickly spread. You'll hear it referred to as a "roadside grass" - it is frequently included in seed mixtures used by Departments of Transportation because it's very low maintenance and has an ability to grow and thrive in rough conditions that would kill other types of grasses (like harsh climates, drought, disease, insects, or poor soil conditions). Bahiagrass includes the grass lawn itself and the most noticeable feature: a 1-1.5 foot Y-shaped seedhead. Like all the grass in the Park, the Bahiagrass gets mowed regularly on a schedule. So why does it seem like you see seedheads frequently even when the grass is short? The seedheads grow much faster than the lawn itself. Our team works hard to keep the mowed areas in the Park looking great, but mowing as often as it would take to keep the seedheads down would lead to even more compacted soil which would further allow weeds to thrive. So next time you spot a patch of seedheads, know that it's because they grow at a faster rate than can be mowed!

The two-year anniversary of devastating Hurricane Harvey is this week and with it evokes emotion and reflection on how far we have come in two years. Buffalo Bayou Park is the “park that was built to flood” and although the levels of Harvey’s destruction were unprecedented and more catastrophic than we thought was possible, we can confidently say that even after just one year we were almost fully recovered. Fast forward two years and the park is lush, green and growing, just as it was pre-Harvey. The picture on top was taken 8/29/17 and the bottom photo was taken 8/23/19.
With miles of trails along #BuffaloBayou, you and your pup can travel from Shepherd Drive through downtown on bike or foot without crossing a street! 🌳#dogsofbuffalobayou
