Black grama

Gramineae Bouteloua eriopoda (Torr.) Torr.

Source: Magness et al. 1971

Black grama is a major native grass of the semiarid to arid areas from West Texas westward to California. The stems, when in contact with soil, form roots at the nodes to form other nearby plants. Stems are slender and wiry, up to 2 feet. Plants are leafy and highly palatable with good feeding value both summer and winter. They are highly drought resistant.
