Remarks :

Also known as “Scribner rosettegrass”. This is a relatively short grass that grows from a basal rosette of green winter leaves. This grass furnishes some green forage to livestock during the winter. Deer eat the green leaves; birds eat the seed. Low panicums grow so close to the ground that it is difficult for livestock to overgraze them. Adapted to sandy to sandy loam soils in the Panhandle.
