Festuca ovina For wildflower & range plantings. Densely-tufted, dwarf bunchgrass. Cool weather native adapted to well-drained, medium-textured soils, with 10"-12 minimum rainfall. Good choice for the Pacific Northwest. Drought tolerant and able to take partial shade, low fertility, and shallow soils. Provides low-growing (to 12), persistent ground cover and good erosion control. In range plantings, it is a competitive understory grass. Not a primary forage producer but readily grazed by sheep (not cattle or horses). Good companion grass for wildflowers. Easily established in spring or fall, when nights are cool. Protect from weed competition for 1-2 years. 3-5 lb/1000 sq ft, 10-20 lb/acre.
