Buffalograss, an ancient range species, has potential as a drought-tolerant, low-maintenance, short-stature turf, if defects can be overcome. Studies suggest improvements are possible in characteristics affecting seed production and persistence of winter green color. Vegetatively propagated cultivars may be available in 3 to 4 years.
