Western wheatgrass is a native cool-season grass found throughout the Great Plains and Intermountain West regions. It has a sod-forming growth habit, and tolerates dry saline soils. Excellent choice for native erosion control and reclamation projects. Moderately palatable to livestock and wildlife. Western wheatgrass can be grown without irrigation in areas receiving at least 10 inches of annual precipitation.
