Good native prairie indicator, though mostly grazed out. Birds love the nutritional seeds. You'll receive roots that will make 5 to 15 plants or more.  Painted Buntings absolutely love Texas Cupgrass. Notice how they use their feet to hold down the stalk as they strip off the seeds. So fun to seasonally watch them on our farm!
