Buffalograss

(Buchloe dactyloides)
Plant Type: 
Grasses
Buffalograss is a warm season perennial grass common on heavy soils throughout South Texas. Buffalograss is considered good forage for livestock. It grows as a thick turf, covering the ground by means of many stolons, but generally dioecious (male and female parts on separate plants). It also produces seed, but germination is usually very low. It can be propagated by collection of stolons, and planting individual nodes on a potting or plug medium. This species is frequently used as a lawn or turf grass in landscaping and golf courses. Buffalograss is difficult to grow from seed.
