Texasgrass is a warm season perennial grass found on sandy sites throughout the South Texas Sand Sheet. Texasgrass can be found growing in open prairies, live oak mottes, and on the edges of other brush canopies. It is endemic to South Texas, meaning it grows nowhere else in the world. Texasgrass provides good forage for livestock and good cover for wildlife. Seeds from Texasgrass are readily consumed by bobwhite quail. Texasgrass usually initiates growth in summer and produces seed in early fall. Dependant on rainfall, seed can also be produced in mid-summer. Texasgrass produces ample seed that can be easily collected by hand or with mechanical seed strippers.
