Buchloe dactyloides (Variety: Texoca)
Buffalo grass is a warm season, fine-textured perennial grass native to the Great Plains region of North America. The "Texoca" variety was developed from Buffalo grass in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. It grows 4-8 inches high and forms a thick sod, keeping weeds out. Buffalo grass is a low-maintenance grass, requiring little watering or fertilizing and no mowing. It can be used for lawns, forage, and erosion control. Buffalo grass withstands heavy grazing, spreads quickly, and can survive in a wide range of conditions.Planting information:
