What Makes Grass Green?

Grass appears to be green as a result of the reflecting of light. The sun gives off ultraviolet rays which are absorbed by the grass. The grass absorbs all of the colors of the UV spectrum with the exception of the color green. The green color is reflected off of the plant and this is what causes the grass to appear green.
