Phleum pratense is a perennial bunchgrass that grows in abundance and is only able to reproduce by seed. Relatively high in fiber, especially so when cut late, and is often offered as a bulk grazing staple for many domesticated animals, including tortoises. Adapted to cooler, more humid growing conditions. Thrives best in rich, moist, finer textured soils, favoring a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Can reach a height of approximately 30”, and is recommended for grazing species. This grass has higher water requirements than most grasses, and will not survive in a drought.
