    Not very widespread around here. Ignore the knotweed growing over the curb (left). Note the unique seed heads and the runner growing over the curb. Any guesses?:usflag:

    Nope. It's frequently used in western states with arid climates. Good guess though.

    Not really. Do I get a prize? :laugh:

    What I do see seems to take forever to come to life in the spring.

    Yes - you win a prize. A date with an Iowa State cheerleader!

    (keep in mind that they are corn-fed):laugh:

    The Iowa D.O.T seeded buffalograss along state highways after World War II. These areas of buffalograss still exist today. weird. :usflag:

    I am a Husker fan. And Jackrabbits (SDSU) fan to a lesser extent.

    I will take a rain check on cheerleader. I wife will not be happy if did.

    Personally I find it hard to fall in love with the buffalo grass. It has its place though. I think a good application would be in xeriscaping.
