Rapidly establishes from seed. Very drought tolerant. White delicate cottontop seedheads offer beautiful display in mass plantings. Arizona Cottontop is grazed by cattle, horses, and sometimes by sheep and goats. It is most palatable when green. It cures well on the stem and provides dry forage for cattle. This species has beneficial qualities in terms of diet for wildlife species including pronghorn antelope, mule deer, desert cottontail, whitethroat woodrat, javalina, and scaled quail.

Tips on Planting Live Roots

You'll receive roots that will make 10 to 15 plants or more. Plant roots as soon as you receive them. Then give a good deep watering for easy establishment.

Order by 11am on Monday. We dig and ship roots every Tuesday with 1-2 days UPS delivery (out of state extra charges may apply). Please be ready to plant & water your roots A.S.A.P. after receipt of order. Our goal is to ship roots on Tuesdays but from time to time mother nature has her own plans. If your shipment of roots is time critical, please call to make special arrangements. If you have seeds in your order, they will ship from our warehouse. Live Roots ship separately from our farm.
