Intermediate Wheatgrass (non-native)

Thinopyrum intermedium

  • Long-lived, cool season grass
  • Non-native species introduced for hay and pasture
  • Slow re-growth following cutting: best adapted to single-cut haying situations
  • Prefers loamy or clay-textured soils; performs poorly on wet, poorly drained soils
  • Establishes more quickly than meadow brome or smooth brome varieties
  • Can be planted with alfalfa to help keep alfalfa from lodging
  • Tolerates droughty conditions
  • Good choice for erosion control and embankment stabilization
