Western Wheatgrass
Pascopyrum smithii
This high quality native cool season pasture grass is found in the western regions of the United States. It is an excellent grass for erosion control with a dense, fibrous root system and can tolerate salty soil conditions making it a great choice for revegetating areas with challenging soils. In its native range from the great plains through the west, western wheatgrass typically grows from 1 to 3 feet tall with as little as 12 inches of rainfall. It is highly palatable to both wildlife and livestock, making it a highly desirable species for cool season forage.
