Snake River Wheatgrass Seed and Plant Description
Scientific Name: Elymus wawawaiensis

Snake River wheatgrass is recognized as one of the most drought tolerant native perennial grasses available. It can survive in as little as 8 inches of annual precipitation. The ‘Secar’ variety is more vigorous and productive than bluebunch wheatgrass, and the name was selected to reflect its drought tolerance (Seca means “dry” in Spanish). It’s heartiness and ease of establishment makes it a good selection for restoration projects or improvement of disturbed sites.
