Bluegrass – Pine


Pine Bluegrass is a relatively long-lived perennial bunchgrass that is often found in meadows, open forests, and on rocky slopes and hills at low to mid elevations. It is rated well as a forage grass, but its populations tend to fluctuate with the annual weather systems that it experiences. In drought years, the populations of this native grass will drop, so it is not as dependable as other forage crops. However, under favorable conditions no native grass will produce as much early spring grazing material as Pine Bluegrass. Overgrazing will cause a pasture filled with this to rapidly deteriorate. It will grow between 1 and 4 feet tall, mature early, and present a color of shaded blue. It can tolerate moderately shaded areas and coarse sands or fine clay soils. But it will not grow in soils that are exposed to saline, are strongly alkaline or have high levels of acidity. This is a variation of the Poa family that is more widely known as ‘Sandberg Bluegrass’.
