It is a grass of some kind.
There is still some funny problem that has never been resolved that only Project Administrators can suggest a second order suggestion without suggesting a soecies. Perhaps you, as the person who put up the sighting, can do so.

When someone suggested that we plant it in HGW, on seeking advice we were advised not to as is would spread into the Kangaroo grass area etc.
