It is a low-growing bunch grass, (1-1 1/2 ft. with the seed heads) that is part sod-forming and can be grown as a tight turf. The blades are thin, so the texture of this grass is very fine. Easy to establish, cold hardy, pest and disease free, tolerant of poor soil. The seed is borne in flags that curl back gracefully when dry. You can leave it unmowed or mow 2 or 3 times a season. We use this grass more than any other in our landscaping. Blue Grama is adaptable and useful throughout the arid West. Fills out well in one season. Sow anytime up to 2 months before the first fall frost. Seeding rate for a lawn: 3-4 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. Reclamation: 30 lbs. per acre. Zones 3-7.

Buchloe dactyloides

$ 3.50

Buffalograss is one of the finest grasses available for lawns and meadows in arid regions. Low growing (4-6"). It spreads along the surface of the soil with runners that root as they grow, stabilizing and binding the soil. It makes a durable, sage-green lawn that tolerates drought, cold winters and poor soil, takes traffic and is immune to pests and diseases unless fed and watered too much. Mow twice a year so the runners don't pile up on the surface. Buffalo is a warm season grass, beige from early fall to late spring. It may also go dormant in the summer if extremely hot and dry; it bounces back on its own when rain comes or a little water will keep it green. Does not compete well with weeds and aggressive grasses like bluegrass and bermuda, so be sure to get rid of those before sowing. Slow growing because the seed germinates in stages over a period of time, but very durable once established. Sow in spring, summer or fall. Seeding rate for lawns: 3-4 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. Reclamation: 40 lbs. per acre. Zones 3-7.
