  • Blend of four collections from the Rio Grande Plains of Texas.
  • Native to southern Texas.
  • The low-growing, dense bunchgrass grows 1-2.5 feet in height and produces multiple heads, each bearing a spike containing 5-14 seed spikes with 3-5 seeds per spike. 
  • Will flower and produce seed throughout the year and frequently reseeds itself.
  • Was developed for use in highway right-of-way seeding, native rangeland restoration, and wildlife plantings in the Rio Grande Plains of Texas. 
  • Will persist on sand, sandy loam, clay, and clay loam soil types.
  • Fast seed production, establishment, and spreading habit make it an excellent planting choice for highly disturbed sites like highway right of ways or areas susceptible to erosion. 
  • Should be allowed to set seed yearly to ensure vigorous stands.
  • Mowing or burning old growth while dormant helps to stimulate seed and forage production. Can be mowed 4-6 inches without adverse effects.
  • Poor grazing value.
