ORCHARDGRASS

Shade Tolerant Orchardgrass Varieties Excellent in Pasture Mixes

F-Orchardgrass

Orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata) is a perennial cool-season bunchgrass that is used for hay and grazing pastures. It is more shade tolerant than most other forage grasses but is less tolerant to continuous grazing than ryegrass or fescue. Excellent for use in mixtures with other grasses and legumes. Orchardgrass is an excellent choice for horse pasture mixes, as it typically is lower in water soluble carbohydrates.

However, GO Seed markets the only High Sugar orchardgrass in the United States. (See Quickdraw below.)
