Green Needle Grass

Green Needle Grass is a cool season, perennial bunch type grass that grows from 1-1/2 to 3 feet tall. It is a native grass that grows on medium to fine textured soil. Green Needle Grass starts growth early in the spring, is nutritious and palatable and remains green through the summer, except in very dry years. It has good regrowth in the fall and is grazed throughout the year. Stand establishment may be slow because of slow germination, caused in part to a high dormant seed content.
