This fine-leaved bunch grass breaks dormancy nearly two weeks earlier than most warm season natives. Sandy soils are its favorite, but it will grow in heavy soils also. It can be seeded alone or it can compete well in mixes due to good seedling vigor and quick establishment even in low fertility soils. This grass should be included in erosion control mixes for sandy areas. The seed heads have a purple cast on a dainty and open panicle.
