Eastern gama grass is a large, long-lived grass that forms dense, clumping tufts. Though it prefers adequate moisture throughout the year, it tolerates drought and can grow in a wide range of conditions. Over time, its strong roots can improve heavy, clay soils as they penetrate and form channels throughout the clay layer. Wildlife will appreciate the cover provided by eastern gama grass.
