Where is my side-oats grama?

Vera_EWASH(z5 EasternWA)September 17, 2004

I don't understand. Lot's of LBS (+ more who've just popped up within last month), some volunteer scribner's panicgrass, voluteer clumps of idaho sheep fescue, plains coreopsis, stiff coreopsis, BES, an un-identified legume trifoliate and other unknown plants...there are some 'other' thin bladed grasses coming in, but I don't know if it's SOG or not? How the heck do I tell? I don't see the bumps with hairs on any of the blades as I've seen described ...or does this come as it matures? I don't know whether to order more SOG and re-seed this fall or wait? I am going to add June Grass and an understory this year.

Thank you,

Vera

if you seeded it this year - you may not see any until next year? i would probably wait one more season before i tried to reseed it - and in my plantings side oats grama tends to grow in earlier than the LBS - its up and tall in july and about the time the SOG is going to seed is when LBS starts really growing tall ...

the bumps and hairs on the leaves are distinctive and do appear even on first few blades. I agree with joepye that you may not see any till next year. I find that it can take 3 years here for germination.

Vera,

If it doesn't work out, I have plenty of SOG seeds I can send you. Just harvested a whole bunch yesterday. April
