Max. height: .7-1.3ft

This perennial native grass grows in large clumps up to 2 feet tall and was an important food source for the antelope and elk that once roamed this area in great herds. Bunch Grass (Carex pansa) can be planted as a lawn substitute but cannot withstand high foot traffic. It is a deer resistant native that would need trimming only 2-3 times per year and has a moderate to low water requirement.
