Why is grass green?

Banner

Warmer weather is finally here, so the wonder this week seems fitting. This week a TPL Kids visitor is wondering why grass is green. 

 

The website LiveScience answered it best: Like many plants, most species of grass produce a bright pigment called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs blue light (high energy, short wavelengths) and red light (low energy, longer wavelengths) well, but mostly reflects green light, which accounts for your lawn's color.

 

Which leads to the next question, does Bulbasaur produce chlorophyll?
