Bouteloua gracilis 'Hachita' (Blue Grama Grass) is the most vigorous selection of this beautiful native grass from the western Great Plains. Beloved for its "eyelash" seed heads, it can also be mowed once a month to create a soft, inviting lawn. Quite xeric, 'Hachita' Blue Grama thrives in both sandy soils and clay! You can also interplant plugs with wildflowers to grow a colorful, low-care short grass prairie. For a turf type lawn, plant plugs 6" apart. 4" tall (15" with seed heads).
Bouteloua gracilis 'Hachita' (Blue Grama Grass) is the most vigorous selection of this beautiful native grass from the western Great Plains. Quite drought-resistant (xeric), it is easy to establish, excellent for erosion control and thrives in both sandy soils and clay!
Beloved for its "eyelash" seed heads, it can also be mowed once a month to create a soft, inviting lawn. 'Hachita' Blue Grama Grass grows in distinct bunches in warmer areas. In northern states, it forms more of a sod.
'Hachita' Blue Grama Grass is a warm season grower and prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It does not do well in shade, in areas with a high water table or with acidic soils.
'Hachita' Grass can be used in ornamental plantings singularly or in groups. You can also interplant plugs with wildflowers to grow a colorful, low-care short grass prairie. 4" tall (15" with seed heads).
For a turf type lawn, plant plugs 6" apart. 70 jumbo plugs per flat. A flat covers 17.5 sq. ft. See Lawn Replacement Instructions for more information. A detailed planting and maintenance instruction sheet is provided with each order. (Also available for order as seed.)
