Blue Grama Grass is an extraordinary growth that creates an attractive lawn for many homeowners. When correctly planted and spread, it will produce a handsome appearance in cold and warm weather areas. However, its growth traits, appearance, and maintenance are essential to understand before considering this grass for your yard. Here's what you need to know about this attractive grass option.
Growth Traits of Blue Grama Grass
This grass gets up to heights of about 12-14 inches tall, making it the shortest ornamental grass. As a result, homeowners who want a reasonably short and easy-to-manage lawn may find this a good choice. In some rare cases, it may grow taller but rarely gets too tall for most to handle appropriately.
It is typically also very drought-resistant and capable of thriving in warm temperatures, allowing for a rapid spread in the summer, particularly in hot-weather areas like southern regions. However, this grass also tolerates cold quite well and has low-to-medium water use needs, making it easy to manage.
Blue Grama Grass Appearance
Delicate leaves with blue-green seedheads should appear whenever this grass is in full bloom. Typically, it grows in tight bunches that spread quickly over a yard and provide an appealing look. Expect it to turn tan when it goes dormant as the temperature decreases, turning blue-green again as the summer returns.
Expect leaves to have an alternate arrangement with a similar design that creates a simple and effective lawn. Proper care and maintenance should create a short and well-maintained property with minimum bare spots, particularly in areas with a strong water presence.
Blue Grama Bloom Information
When in full bloom, you can expect this grass to have a yellowish color that contrasts with the blue-green seedheads mentioned previously. The overall color should have a nice blended appearance that creates an appealing lawn for many homeowners. Please pay attention to the distribution of your seeds, giving them plenty of room to grow, expand, and reach their full potential on your lawn.
Expect blooms to appear starting in early July and lasting throughout the warmest parts of October. Thankfully, it won't die during the winter but only go dormant and reserve its strength. This grass has a surprising distribution range, including states as far north as Maine and as far south as southern Mexico. It blooms best in dry prairies and plains with light to medium water influx.
Blue Grama Glass Planting Information
Plant this grass in well-drained areas with gravel, sand, or clay-rich soil. Thankfully, it is heavily drought-resistant and tough, meaning it will thrive well just about anywhere. In addition, it can grow well on as little as seven inches of rain in a year, making watering unnecessary for many areas.
With this species, taller blades mean fewer water needs, though a lawn may lose much of its appeal if the grass gets too long. Expect birds and butterflies in your yard when you grow this grass, as it appeals to most species of these animals.
