A great lawn solution for those who want to spend less time mowing and watering their lawns. Buffalo Grass Seed grows 6 in. tall and forms a thick, rugged, blue-green mat that rarely needs mowing. A hardy native of the dry prairie states, Buffalo Grass resists heat and drought as well as insects and most lawn diseases. It will not survive in areas that receive more than 25 inches of rain annually. This sun-loving, warm season grass also does not tolerate shade. For best results, sow Buffalo Grass Seed in the spring. 1/2 lb. of seed covers 250 sq. ft. Zones 3-9.
