Buffalo grass is a warm season perennial that is a good seed choice for areas that have drought conditions in the summer. Unlike other grasses that require hydration and turn brown when the summer temperatures soar into the 100's, buffalo grass does not bolt. It thrives in hot dry weather and stays a lovely blue-green color. When you plant buffalo grass seed you will save money by not having to water the grass as much and you will save energy because you will not have to mow weekly.
