Description: Mountain Home germplasm Sandberg bluegrass is a small, densely tufted short-lived perennial bunchgrass adapted to low elevation, semi-arid sites with long, hot growing seasons. Mountain Home's drought tolerance, competitive nature, and ease of establishment make it an excellent choice for post-fire restoration of cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.) dominated landscapes and for conversion of introduced perennial grasslands to native plant communities. The selected germplasm (natural track) release will be named Mountain Home Germplasm Sandberg bluegrass for the original collection site.
Keywords: Mountain Home germplasm, Sandberg bluegrass, Poa secunda, restoration
