Buffalo Grass Seed

Buffalo Grass Seed - Buffalo Grass is a "true" native grass of the USA. Originating from the Great Plains to Montana and down to Mexico. It is a warm season, fine leaved perennial and is a sod forming grass spreading by putting down stolons. Buffalo grass seed is planted in low rainfall areas for pastures and as eco-friendly lawns requiring little water. Buffalo Grass has excellent drought tolerance and will grow in areas with less than 25 inches of rainfall annually. It also will tolerate low and high temperatures giving it a wide range of adaptation beyond it's native areas. Please scroll down for a general adaptation map.

See each product for specific information.
Buffalograss is used for turf, lawn grass, (Bowie) reclamation areas, pasture grass (Texoka), erosion control and more. Buffalo grass is not aggressive and can be easily controlled or removed.

Buffalo Grass Facts - Planting & Adaptation

Buffalo Grass is one of the most cold tolerant of the warm season grasses and reaches heights of 6 - 10 inches. The grass leaves curl and fall over thus you can leave it un-mown if desired. Buffalo grass spreads fast on runners or stolons much like strawberry plants. Each node on these stolons sends down a root, which creates another plant. Buffalo Grass is used extensively as a quality pasture grass and as a native lawn grass.
