- This perennial bunchgrass will sometimes form continuous cover in boggy, open mesic or dry habitats . It releases highly persistent allelopathic substances which inhibit competition . The dead material provides an excellent fuel for fires, and further it is fire-stimulated, increasing cover dramatically with each fire.

Species Andropogon virginicus
"Perennial tall bunchgrass with tufted stems, 50-100 cm tall, branches 1-3 at node. Leaves: Leaf-sheaths more or less tuberculate-hirsute on the margins with long usually lax hairs ; ligule yellow-brown, membranous, truncate , white-fringed at edge ; blades 40 cm long or less, 2-5 mm wide, rough or roughish, hirsute on the upper surface near the base ; spathes 3-5 cm long, extending beyond the racemes . Racemes: 2 (-3-4), 2-3 cm long. Spikelets : Sessile spikelet 3-4 mm long, twice to half again as long as the internode, the awn straight, 10-15 mm long; pedicellate spikelet wanting or rarely present as a minute scale, pedicel exceeding the sessile spikelet. Flowers: Either sessile and hermaphrodite, or stalked and staminate , sterile or not developed." (Cronk and Fuller, 1995. In PIER , 2003)
Flowers: Bloom Period: July, August. • Flower Color: goldyellow-orange
Size: 36-48" tall.
Subhumid to humid subtropical areas on a wide range of soils, (PIER , 2003). From sea level to 1,600 m in Hawaii, (Smith). Dried material contributes to fire hazard, and reproduction is encouraged by fire, (PIER, 2003). On infertile soils (low in nitrogen or phosphorous), I. virginicus acts as a long-lived competitor, (Uchytil, 1992). Work in Tennesse showed broomsedge to have an average lifespan of 3-5 years and that all plants died within 7 years.
Typically found at an altitude of 0 to 2,426 meters (0 to 7,959 feet).
Ecology: This perennial bunchgrass sometimes forms continuous cover in boggy, open mesic and dry habitats . It releases highly persistent allelopathic substances (Rice 1972, In Smith). The dead material provides an excellent fuel for fires. It is fire-stimulated; its cover increases dramatically with each fire (Smith, Parman, and Wampler, 1980, in Smith). In areas where it occurs, both fire intensities and acreage burnt have increased, (Smith). Work in Oklahoma in the US showed no change with a single spring burn , an increase with two spring burns, and that it was drastically reduced with a summer or fall burn when soil conditions were dry. Andropogon virginicus invades forest and other native vegetation, along tracks, (ESC, undated). Nearly pure stands can persist as a result of competition and allelopathy, (Uchytil, 1992).
The seed is well adapted to catch
in wool and fur as well as in clothing
, 2003). May also be spread
on machinery, (PIER, 2003).
Seeds are also dispersed by wind and readily establish on exposed
soil, (Uchytil, 1992). Each flowering culm
may have as many as 50
, and each raceme 8 to 12 spikelets
. Germination is relatively
high after cold stratification
. (Uchytil, 1992)
Flowering begins when plants are 2 or 3 years old, and continues thereafter (Uchytil, 1992).
Culture: Space 36-48" apart.
Soil: Minimum pH: 5.6 • Maximum pH: 6.5
Sunlight: Sun Exposure: Full Sun .
Temperature: Cold Hardiness: 3a, 3b, 4a, 4b, 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b. (map)
