Danthonia cumminsii collected on the Guang Ho Ba meadow in the vicinity of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Yunnan Province, China. A tussock forming perennial producing fine leaves that has sent out several attractive flower heads. These panicles glisten white but under a light microscope the colours deepen to silver.
From the attached light microscope images the detail of the separate shrimp like anther and the highly distinctive and decorative feather duster shape of the stigmas can be appreciated.
