(Panicum hallii var. hallii & fillipes)
Hall’s panicum is a warm season grass common to South Texas. It grows on a variety of soil types. Determination of variety hallii and fillipes is difficult and some integration between the two is present in South Texas. Hall’s panicum is fair livestock forage and has limited value to wildlife. Birds occasionally eat the seed. Seeds can be collected by hand or with seed strippers, but care should be taken to harvest only mature seed, as maturity varies within plants and seed heads. It has value to restoration efforts because it is a common component of many successional stages, and range sites in South Texas. Hall’s panicum has indeterminate seed maturity, making harvest and seed production difficult.
