Buffalo (Buchloe dactyloides)

Buffalograss is a "true" native grass of the prairies of the Western USA states. It is a warm season, fine leaved perennial and is a sod forming grass. It is used in low rainfall areas for both pasturage and for lawns. Buffalo grass has excellent drought tolerance and in fact grows best in areas with less than 25 inches of rainfall annually. It also will tolerate low and high temperatures giving it a wide range of adaptation.
