Lehmann lovegrass

Gramineae Eragrostis lehmanniana Nees

Source: Magness et al. 1971

This is a warm season, slightly spreading grass introduced from South Africa in 1932. It is used for range reseeding in the warm semidesert areas of Southwestern United States. It forms prostrate stems which root at the nodes and is readily established by seeding. The plants are smaller and less cold-tolerant than Boer or Weeping lovegrasses.
