Indian Ricegrass



A short to medium lived perennial, cool season, native bunchgrass growing 8 to 30” tall. It is very winter hardy, has a broad climatic adaptation and prefers dry and primarily loamy- sandy-gravelly sites. Indian Ricegrass is highly palatable to livestock and wildlife. One of its greatest assets is stabilizing sites susceptible to wind erosion. Indian Ricegrass is generally found in the plains, foothills, mountains, and intermountain basins of the western United States. Varieties: Nezpar | Paloma | Rimrock
