Weeping Lovegrass copy



Weeping Lovegrass is a rapidly growing warm-season bunchgrass that was introduced into the U. S. from East Africa. The many long, narrow leaves emerging from a tight tuft are pendulous, with the tips almost touching the ground. The drooping leaf characteristic gives rise to the name “weeping” lovegrass. It is used as a temporary cover for erosion control purposes and provides almost immediate cover on steep outer slopes where soil is rather acidic and has low fertility. It can also be used as a nurse crop when seeding sericea lespedeza, coastal panic grass or switchgrass. It can also be used as pasture forage and also cut for hay.
