http://www.afnn.org/Content/Indian%20Trails/IndianTrailsFall1999RetailPriceList.htm  lists it as being Tripsacum dactyloides.  A Google search revealed quite few hits for the latter spelling that you gave -- the above is just the first url I picked up.  John

        We have been asked to identify an ornamental grass which apparently has
a trade name (cultivar name?) something like

        "Fhakahatchoe" or "--hatchee"

        I have not seen the grass, but am told that it is some sort of a plume
grass, very attractive.

        Anybody have a clue?

        Thanks JOHN

Non totum difficile est, sed nihil facile.
