If irrigation is not available, native dryland grass species such as crested wheatgrass, buffalograss, and blue gramagrass
Other grasses were the most abundant herbaceous material (35%) including winter grass, spear grass, oldfield threeawn, love grass, ovalleaf sedge (Carex cephalophora), arrowfeather, starved rosette grass, and hairy gramagrass
Thus, an extremely shallow soil or soil material in the true prairie association may support preclimax blue gramagrass
rather than climax bluestem, because soil development has not yet reached a stage at which it will support the latter.
Some species, such as crested wheatgrass and blue gramagrass
, can tolerate greater alkalinity.
Common Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, fine fescues, common bermudagrass, bahiagrass, tall fescue, buffalograss, wheatgrasses, and blue gramagrass
are popular choices in their respective zones of adaptation.
