Buffalograss is a short, 4-6″, stoloniferous, dense, sod-forming, palatable native grass common to the prairies. It is long lived, soft textured and either gray green or blue green in color. This warm season grass is commonly mixed with drought tolerant Blue Grama in order to ensure solid color throughout the season. It does not perform well in higher elevations or on sandy sites. Buffalograss sends out above-ground stolons which are quite aggressive once mature. Newer turf-type varieties are bred for disease resistance and a deeper green color. May take 15 – 21 days or more to germinate. Keep seeds moist until germination which may mean watering several times a day and using a mulch.
