OWN, will give it to you. :thumbs_up:

"It is a good grazing grass with a high leaf production and palatability. The palatability, however, decreases as the plant matures. Foxtail Buffalo Grass is, however, difficult to establish in clay soil, but once established, grows well.

Foxtail Buffalo Grass is a drought resistant species found in more arid regions and the species has been imported to countries such as Australia where it is an important fodder grass".

For you Carol :gflower:
It is a valuable fodder grass, but believed to cause certain ailments in animals at certain climatic conditions. Spikelets are green to purple.
