Fall Witchgrass

(Digitaria cognata)
Plant Type: 
Grasses
Fall witchgrass is an early successional native grass commonly found on sand and sandy loam soils in south Texas. This grass commonly occurs in areas subject to heavy grazing pressure, or recent disturbance. It produces seed throughout the year in favorable conditions. Fall witchgrass is thought to be a good candidate for restoration efforts on sand and sandy loam ecological sites. It would also be a good species for use on highway rights-of-way because of its low stature. STN and the PMC have a large number of seed collections of this species, and hopes to one day evaluate the species’ potential for development and restoration use.
