Classification

Description
A common wild cereal plant of the Plains of Tekara. The heads of this grass track the sun through its daily travel. Even on very overcast days this behaviour is reliable enough to predict the time of day. The grain itself is soft, making is less useful as a flour producing cereal crop, however it is commonly made into porridge. The plant is also known to have antiseptic, and astringent properties.
