Description: Anatone is a natural, non-manipulated bluebunch wheatgrass population accession originating from Asotin County in Southeastern Washington. It is a long-lived perennial bunchgrass better adapted to low elevation, semi-arid sites with long, hot growing seasons than other bluebunch wheatgrass accessions or available releases. Its seedling vigor and establishment also exceed those of other accessions and released cultivars. Anatone's ready germination, rapid development, ability to compete with exotic annuals, and drought tolerance make it an excellent choice for restoration of cheatgrass (Bromus tectorum L.) infested landscapes. It can also be used to convert stands of introduced perennial grasses to native plant communities in areas where it once existed. Anatone is widely adapted throughout the natural range of this species, and can be used to restore extensive disturbances once occupied by shrubs and bunchgrass. Bluebunch wheatgrass is one of the most common native grasses of the Intermountain West. There is a need for a release that can be used in the drier portions of the species range to improve species diversity, resilience, and habitat values.

Keywords: Anatone, bluebunch wheatgrass, Pseudoroegneria spicata, restoration
