Mountain Brome

(Bromus marginatus)

Mountain Brome is a medium-sized, cool-season bunchgrass native to the intermountain west. It thrives on moderately deep, fertile, fine-textured soils and does moderately well on the fairly dry soils of open communities and disturbed sites. Mountain Brome is highly palatable to livestock and elk when it is green. Livestock relish the seeds in the fall.

Drill seed 1.3 to 3.8 cm (½ to 1 ½ in.) deep depending on soil type. Seeding rate may be increased on disturbed sites. Seed in late fall or as early in summer as possible in higher mountain elevations.
