Mountain brome is a cool-season perennial bunchgrass native to the Intermountain West. It germinates quickly and produces a deep root system, making it an excellent choice for erosion control. Mountain brome is also palatable for wildlife and livestock but can be short-lived in pastures. It grows up to four feet tall and prefers deep fertile soils of medium to fine texture. Not tolerant to flooding or water-logged soils. It can be grown without irrigation in areas receiving at least 16 inches of annual precipitation.
Scientific Name: Bromus marginatus
