Meadow Barley



A short-lived perennial, cool season, native bunchgrass that grows 12 to 14” tall. Establishes rapidly and is a good cover crop in orchards and vineyards. Tolerates drought as well as infertile, alkaline, compacted soil. Meadow Barley is especially useful in reclamation and erosion control. Common in the Western States and some of the North Eastern States.
