Coshise lovegrass

Warm season, drought tolerant, perennial bunchgrass adapted to well-drained soils, achieving tufts up to four ft. tall. More productive at higher elevations. Establishes more easily, yields more forage, and persists better than Lehmanns lovegrass on identical sites. (Released 1979, source of ecotype: Pretoria, South Africa)
