Bentgrass – Spike


Spike Bentgrass is a perennial bunchgrass that is found in areas that have high moistier levels and receive full sun.  It naturally grows along the edges of streams and throughout wetlands, at elevations ranging anywhere from sea level to 10,000 feet.  Between 1 and 4 feet tall, Spike Bentgrass is easy to establish and grow in moist, moderately acidic mineral soils.  It is rated as a good forage grass and will typically reseed itself.  Occasionally it will develop and utilize rhizomes to distribute itself throughout an ecosystem.
