This perennial warm season grass has many uses including erosion control, restoration and wildlife habitat for game birds, song birds and small mammals.

This grass prefers full sun, and the seedlings are not shade tolerant, but they do develop rapidly.
This grass prefers large areas, it can take over rather quickly.
