Formerly known as Kochia prostrata (prostrate summer cypress). Small to medium polymorphic evergreen subshrub adapted to a wide range of sites and soils, including shallow soils with low fertility and highly saline or sodic soils. Behaves as a warm or cool season plant depending upon the ecotype in which it is planted. Exhibits exceptional fire resistance and is used for green stripping in cheatgrass-infested ranges in the Intermountain West. Very palatable and nutritious for both livestock and wildlife as a year-round forage with proper management.
