Longevity : Perennial
Season : Warm
Origin : Introduced
Value : Wildlife – poor
This grass is low-growing and creeping with stolons and stout, scaly rhizomes. Stolons are pressed firmly to the ground, have short internodes, and root freely from the nodes forming a dense sod. The flat, tough-textured leaves are usually hairless, with blades 2-6 mm wide.
They are flat, folded, and inrolled, tapering to a fine point. The leaf bases at the terminus of each rhizome usually have a purplish hue. Stems usually reach 20-75 cm tall.
This grass is used primarily as a forage.
The nutritive value remains high when mature, but it is not very productive.
It is also valued as an erosion-controlling soil stabilizer, as well as for its productivity, ease of establishment and persistence.
It makes a relatively low-maintenance turfgrass as well, with less disease and insect problems than some of the other warm season grasses.
