    2. Dicots with grass-like foliage have two cotyledons. The first true leaves of such wildflowers may resemble grass seedlings (for example, Liatris). 3. Seedlings at the "first true leaf" stage are most easily identified using a 10X to 20X hand magnifier. 4. The first true leaves of many species have sparse to dense hairs; hairs are most. The grass family includes approximat species classified into to genera (Clayton and Renvoize, ; Watson and Dallwitz, ). The grasses are included with lilies, orchids, pineapples, and palms in the group known as the monocotyledons, which includes all flowering plants with a single seed .
