  •  Switch Grass (none)
    As a native southerner I want to suggest Bush and company consider using the Kudzu vines that go wild in the south for fuel. Plant one kudzu vine and turn your back and your car and house is covered with it. There must be some use for the pesky stuff.

    and also here is info on Switch Grass which I had never heard of before tonight.

    SWITCH GRASS: Is a native, perennial warm season grass used for forage, slow to establish and fast growing up to 2-6 ft. As with a lot of our native plants it was depleted from over usage, burning, and land clearing for farming. Renewed interest in this grass is on the rise again.  

    This grass along with other plants is also being considered for fuel. Used as fresh forage, pelletized as supplemental feeds, and ground cover. Switch grass is excellent for renovation of wildlife habitats and supplying ground birds with insect habitats and ground
