Description
Rothrock's Grama, is a short-lived, warm season, Native annual bunchgrass. It grows naturally in all of the Western Plains and Intermountain States, but most commonly and widely in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. It forms a dense almost cereal looking plant which needs plenty of moisture and grows best in loamy soils with some sand and gravel. It is a small stature plant, growing to about 1 foot high. Germination is dependent upon warm soil temperatures and heavy Summer precipitation associated with thundershowers and monsoon rains in desert ecosystems. Rothrock's Grama is an early seral species which often grows on disturbed sites with bare ground and sparse vegetation where it gives protection against wind erosion until perennials take hold. It does not have good quality forage and withstands browsing and treading pressure well.
