Sand Lovegrass Seed - Sand Lovegrass is a warm season bunch grass. It produces a heavy fibrous root system and spreads by seed and rooting at the nodes. Sand Lovegrass is best adapted to areas getting 18 to 35 inches of rainfall or under irrigation.
It does especially well on sandy land, but can be used on heavier soil. It grows to a height of 2 to 4 feet tall. It can be found growing in the Great Plains from Illinois to Texas. It is a cold and drought tolerant perennial. It is highly palatable to cattle and wildlife and must be managed to avoid overgrazing of shorter than 5 to 8 inches.
The leaves remain tender and palatable at all stages of growth. The seeds are small and slick and are best planted with a small seed drill 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep at a rate of approximately 2 pure live seed pounds per acre.
The ease of establishment of this leafy native makes it an excellent choice for reclaiming disturbed sites.
