Boer Lovegrass

 (Eragrostis chloromelas)


Boer Lovegrass was introduced from South Africa. It is a fairly long-lived, warm-season bunchgrass, heading out at about 90 cm (36 in.) and has a characteristic of blue-green foliage. It is a little more palatable than either Lehmann or Weeping Lovegrass. However, seedling vigor and ease of establishment is inferior to either of these two introduced Lovegrasses. Boer Lovegrass is adapted to warm, semi-arid areas of the southern Rocky Mountains and southern plateaus, but does not survive on more northern sites.

The seed is small and heavy and should be planted to a depth of 0.6 cm (¼ in.).
