Curly Mesquite

(Hilaria belangeri)


Curly mesquite is a stoloniferous grass native to the southern plains, part of the central Great Plains to the southern Rocky Mountains and southwestern deserts. It is a valuable range grass occurring on dry, deep clay to rocky soils at elevations of 304.8 to 1,828 mi. (1,000 to 6,000 ft.). It is palatable and cures well on the stem. Curly mesquite also shows promise for used on mine lands.

The seed is chaffy and should be drilled with a special grass drill. Planting depth should be 1.3 to 2.5 cm (½ to 1 in.) depending on soil type and moisture. Early to mid-summer plantings usually have the best success.
