Panicum II

The minuscule flowers of switchgrass. The magenta-colored, feathery structures are the stigmas (female reproductive structures that receive pollen) and the orange-colored pendant structures are the male stamens. Feathery stigmas are typical of grasses ("Panicum virgatum", family Poaceae).
