Blue Grama, Bouteloua gracilis
Blue grama is a warm-season perennial grass, native to North America, known for its distinctive curved seedhead. It tolerates a range of soil conditions, from rocky to sandy, with moderate acidity. Blue grama can be used as a native grass lawn alternative in dry areas without heavy traffic, as it does not tolerate boggy or wet soils. Great for erosion control, grazing for livestock, and low-maintenance cover.
