Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates, in a note under Pennisetum setaceum (Forssk.) Chiov., that Pennisetum advena Wipff & Veldkamp "occ escapes from cult in s California (Sida 18:1035), where it is often sold as an orn under the name Pennisetum setaceum cv 'Rubrum'." [Unfortunately, the treatment does not indicate more precisely the status of Pennisetum purpureum Schumach. relative to the flora of CA. As an active waif, as suggested by use of the present tense, "escapes", in the note, the taxon would have been included in the key to members of the genus, with a description only online; the fact that the taxon was not treated this way suggests it might have been considered to be an historical waif. ]
