Poa secunda ssp. sandbergii

Poa secunda ssp. sandbergii

Sandberg bluegrass

Formerly known as Poa sandbergii. Short, cool season, drought tolerant, perennial bunchgrass similar to P. canbyi but is more drought tolerant, less productive on favorable sites but more productive on poorer sites, and matures earlier in the year.

Varieties: 
High Plains

A composite of three accessions from across Wyoming, selected for initial stand and vigor, uniformity, and similar seed maturation dates. The broad genetic base of this germplasm selection broadens its adaptation into Montana, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and also the Pacific Northwest. This is the first varietal release of Sandberg bluegrass. (Released 2000, source of ecotype: Campbell, Natrona and Uinta Counties, WY)
