There are actually 3 plants on this photo (discounting the marigold in the background) but I have an idea these are all somehow related. One plant has what appears to be large seed pods most obvious at the bottom of photo 1. The second plant (upper center-right of photo 2) has a taller stem and looks very wheat-like . The last plant (left-center bottom photo 2) reminds me of a feather duster with perhaps one hundred fine stems coming from a central stem. We’re all stumped so thanks!

    Please make new post with photo of the “a feather duster” plant by itself with a white back ground i.e. paper, cardboard…I have some ideas but unable to go further without a closeup of the leaves & stem. Thank you and best wishes!

    Also looks like foxtail in bottom photo with three seed heads between the millets.
