Chaparral Hairy Grama

Chaparral Hairy Grama


The Chaparral Hairy Grama is a blend of 4 collections from the Rio Grande Plains. The low-growing dense bunchgrass will persist on sand, sandy loam, clay, and clay loam soil types. It is compatible in plantings with other native species. Hairy Grama’s fast seed production, establishment, and spreading habit make it an excellent planting choice for highly disturbed sites like highway rights of way or areas susceptible to erosion.  It also has fair value as livestock forage.

Fair forage value and excellent choice for right-of-way applications.
