anybody have any experience with gama grass (Tripsacum dactyloides)? I'm in southwest Washington, well outside it's typical range. I'm thinking about it mixed up with Caraganas and maybe Lespedeza and some others. maybe good goat browse when it's tall, followed by cattle, then birds.
I guess my biggest questions are how difficult it is to establish and how long its growing season is.
I have tried to get it established a couple times to no avail. It needs moisture at the right time, which has been difficult to manage the past few years with our droughts. You're less likely to have that problem!
I might try again in a protected and watered part of the yard.
Turns out that all you have to do is ... do-nothing
do-nothing really isn't going to work where I'm at. I'm half a continent away from where this stuff grows wild, so there isn't an existing seed bank in the dirt. good to know that it responds well to intensive grazing, though, as that's what I'm planning to practice.
