      Blue Grama - Native


      Blue grama is a warm-season perennial bunch grass native to North America. It grows 8 to 24 inches tall and changes color throughout the year from grayish green during the growing season to a straw yellow color at maturity. Blue grama does well in a variety of soil types but prefers well-drained soils and will not tolerate wet conditions, shade, or acidic soils. Blue grama provides good livestock grazing, is somewhat resistant to heavy grazing, and is a dominant grass in the short and mixed-grass prairies.
