$24.00 - $175.00
A shallow-rooted, perennial, cool-season grass well adapted to the Upper Midwest. Very winter hardy and very palatable.
Better for hay crop than as a pasture species. Usually mixed with alfalfa or clover for hay or pasture. Preferred grass in horse hay. Frost seeds fairly well.
Best production is on heavy ground and cooler climates.
Shallow root system makes it a poor choice on droughty soils. Sensitive to high temperatures, so mid-summer regrowth may be limited.
