Streambank wheatgrass is a native, cool-season perennial sod forming grass found throughout the Intermountain West and surrounding regions. Strongly rhizomatous, streambank wheatgrass is an excellent choice for erosion control, reclamation and can even form a low-maintenance lawn. Not commonly used for forage, but is palatable to all types of livestock. One of the most drought tolerant native grasses, it can be grown in areas that receive as little as 6 inches of annual precipitation.
Scientific Name: Elymus lanceolatus ssp. psammophilus
