Sudan grass Sorghum sudanense, from here.

Belongs within: Panicoideae.
Contains: Andropogon.

The Andropogoneae are a tribe of C4 grasses characterised by the possession of paired spikelets with bracts present outside the spikelets (Grass Phylogeny Working Group 2001). This tribe includes a number of economically significant crops such as maize Zea mays and sugarcane Saccharum officinarum. Members of the genus Sorghum are grown for their grains in many drier parts of the world. Miscanthus species are grown as ornamentals and for biofuel. Andropogon includes a number of significant pasture species; A. gerardii is a dominant grass species in North American tallgrass prairie. Cogongrass Imperata cylindrica is a dominant plant species in disturbed habitats in many warmer regions of the Old World and has also become an invasive species outside its native range.
