Buffalograss Lawn Seed

Description

Buffalograss is a permanent, low-growing, warm season grass. It produces vigorous runners and stolons and exhibits excellent drought and wear tolerance. Since it is a warm season grass, it will go dormant and turn brown in the winter months and green up in the spring.


Characteristics

Outstanding heat tolerance
Needs little to no mowing
Poor shade tolerance
Low water needs

Widely adapted to varying soil and climate types
Can be left unmowed for a meadow appearance


Uses

Buffalograss is a native american grass that still flourishes on rangelands in the midwestern states. Because of its drought tolerance, low nutritional requirements and short stature, it is drawing increasing attention for its potential use as a low-maintenance turfgrass for California.
