Smilograss

Gramineae, Poaceae Oryzopsis miliacea (L.) Benth. and Hook. ex Aschers. & Schweinf.

Source: Magness et al. 1971

This is a cool season bunchgrass introduced from the Mediterranean Region. It is used for range reseeding in Central and Southern California. It is drought resistant. The stout stems reach to 5 feet. Smilograss is moderately palatable and longlived but difficult of establishment.
