Wilman Lovegrass is an introduced species from South Africa. The plants grow 2 to 4 feet tall with many slender leaves that grow from the base of the plant. This grass provides quality forage for livestock and good cover for game birds.
The most limiting factor associated with this grass is that it lacks cold tolerance, which limits it area of adaptation. This grass thrives best on medium-textured, deep soils especially sandy, low or depleted organic soils. It is suitable to plant for forage or hay and for soil stabilization. It can be planted in seed mixtures with other improved or native grasses, or as a mono-culture for hay or grazing.
