White Tridens



White Tridens

Grass Family ( Poaceae : Eragrosteae )

Latin Name : Tridens albescens
Longevity : Perennial
Season : Warm
Origin : Native
Value :
Wildlife – fair
Livestock – fair to good

Remarks :

This grass has very few stems; it has both basal leaves and leaves along the stem. The upper surface of the leaves are rough and the leaf blades taper to a fine point. The seedhead appears spike-like and appears white with a reddish tint. Livestock will graze white tridens, but this grass never makes up a large percentage of the plant community. White tridens is considered an increaser on most sites; its abundance indicates fair range condition. Adapted to sandy to sandy loam soils but grows on clayey soils if moisture is adequate. Prefers areas that overflow occasionally.
