Mountain Brome



A short-lived, perennial, cool season, native bunchgrass growing 3 to 4 feet tall. Prefers deep, fertile, mesic soils of medium to fine textures, but also survives on thin, dry or coarse soils, resulting in lower production levels. It is winter hardy and has good shade tolerance and fair tolerance to fire. Well adapted to the Northwestern regions, the foothills and mountains of the Intermountain West and some Midwestern States. Varieties: Bromar, Garnet
