Alamo is a vigorous, perennial bunch grass that grows throughout most of the United States. This grass grows 3 to6 feet high, with large, vigorous rhizomes. Because of its deep penetrating root system, it can handle drought periods better than most grasses and provides outstanding erosion control.
Switchgrass grows on nearly all soil types but is most abundant and thrives best on moist low areas of relatively high fertility. It is unique in that it can withstand flooding and saturated soils for long periods of time after it is established.
Switchgrass is relished by all classes of livestock and is suitable to hay and silage. Switchgrass provides excellent cover for wildlife populations; the seed provides a high quality food source for game birds.
