Wilman Lovegrass establishes quickly, and is therefore used sometimes in native mixes to help establish ground cover and prevent erosion. It is a warm-season perennial bunchgrass introduced from South Africa. Wilman has been evaluated on a wide variety of soil types in Central and South Texas and appears to have survived cold winters with temperatures of -5° F. Although Wilman is of the same genus, it bears little resemblance to the well known varieties of lovegrass and is more palatable than other lovegrass varieties.
