La Salle Arizona Cottontop

La Salle Arizona Cottontop


The La Salle Arizona Cottontop is a blend of 12 South Texas collections. The seed head measures 2 to 5 inches and bears a number of fluffy white seeds. It is a multi-use plant suitable to native habitat restoration. It simultaneously provides grazing for livestock and cover/food for native wildlife. Active germination is excellent compared to other grasses, making it an excellent choice for planting after disturbance such as brush control. La Salle will readily reseed itself, and individual plants are long lived.

Excellent for native rangeland restoration providing cover and food for wildlife. Good livestock forage.
