Yes, I was loving Guinea Grass back when I wrote this in 1986 in the USVI. Damn that was over 30 years ago...




Guinea grass grows to 3,5 meters tall.
There are pictures from Syria with tanks hiding in the grass wich caused the conspiracion theorists to claim those are fake pictures and russian propaganda made with toy tanks playing in regular grass.
Aparently wasnt propaganda and the guinea grass its native there.

I've observed it with flower stalks at about 2 meters maximum in Hawaii, Caribbean, South and Central America. Never even 3 meters.
This is typical of what I have seen in the places I have been, maybe a little taller with seed heads:
