Herbaspirillum frisingense is a nitrogen-fixing bacterium which was found in C4-fibre plants like prairie cordgrass (Spartina pectinata), Chinese silver grass, (Miscanthus sinensis), Amur silver-grass (Miscanthus sacchariflorus), and Napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum). The specific name frisingense comes from Freising, a town in Germany where H. frisingense was first isolated from prairie cordgrass and Miscanthus plants.
