Buffalograss is a fine leaved, native, sod forming, warm season perennial and is very low growing. It has leaves that are from 4 to 8 inches long. It makes rapid growth in late spring and summer. It recovers rapidly after a drought and can withstand heavy grazing. Buffalograss does a good job of erosion control and is used in lawns for drier areas and for airport runways, picnic areas, etc.
