Blue grama is native, warm-season, perennial bunchgrass that grows 1-2’ feet tall. Blue grama is naturally found in the western Edwards Plateau, Panhandle, and Trans Pecos regions of the Texas, but can successfully be used for erosion control, lawns, and landscaping over much of the state. It is very palatable grass and forms a dense turf under heavy grazing. Blue grama is tolerant of extreme heat, cold, and drought. It is highly relished by all livestock both as green forage and cured winter forage. It also provides excellent cover for quail. This grass is readily used in native range seeding, for erosion control, in right-of-way plantings, and in lawn and ornamental plantings.
Blue Grama is naturally found in the western third of Texas, but it is used throughout the state as part of native lawn mixes and as an ornamental.
Planting Rate: 1.5 lb. pure live seed (PLS) per acre.
