Purple Lovegrass

Purple Lovegrass

Grass Family : Poaceae : Eragrosoideae

Latin Name : Eragrostis spectabilis
Longevity : Perennial
Season : Warm
Origin : Native
Value :
Wildlife – fair
Livestock – good

Remarks :

Adapted to dry or moist pastures, roadsides, and waste areas. Prefers sandy soils. This grass is readily grazed by livestock in the spring and early summer. On heavily grazed areas, deer will dig up and eat the basal part of the stem during winter months. This grass adds variety to livestock diet, but is seldom abundant enough to be a key management species. Provides nesting cover for some game birds.
