Wilman Lovegrass


Latin Name : Eragrostis Superba

Longevity : Perennial
Season : Summer
Origin : Introduced to U.S.
Value :
Wildlife – Low  
Livestock – Good

Remarks :

"Wilman" Lovegrass is a warm season perennial bunchgrass, bearing little resemblance to other lovegrasses. "Wilman" is adapted to most soils, especially sandy sites throughout north central to south Texas. Some seed are being used in reclamation areas as far east as Florida. Cattle and deer find "Wilman" palatable and will readily eat both green forage and cured hay. The dense undergrowth provides a fair habitat for quail and other wildlife. It recovers easily after intense grazing. "Wilman" Lovergrass is not as cold tolerant as the native grasses, but is drought resistant. The average height is 2 to 3 feet tall. The seeding rate for "Wilman" is approximately 2 pure live seed pounds per acre. The seed are about the same size as a grain of sand and should be planted approximately 1/4 inch deep using a small seed drill box.
