Buffalo Grass

Buchloe dactyloides
A low perennial lawn grass that reaches a maximum height of 6 ( rarely over 4 ) inches uncut, that is native to the Great Plains of North America ( from Saskatchewan to Manitoba to southern Wisconsin; south to central Arizona to southern Texas to central Illinois ).
The foliage is gray-green from late spring through mid autumn, turning beige for the remainder of the year. It is a warm season grass.
Hardy zones 3 to 9 in full sun, it is tolerant of heat and drought ( overwatering and fertilizeing can actually cause disease and insect problems ).
