weeping lovegrass

Origin: Introduced from southern Africa

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: Recently collected in King Co. (Jacobson et al. 2001).

FNA25: "Eragrostis curvula is native to southern Africa. It is often used for reclamation because it provides good ground cover but, once introduced, it easily escapes. In the Flora region, it grows on rocky slopes, at the margins of woods, along roadsides, and in waste ground, at 20-2400 m, usually in pine-oak woodlands, and yellow pine and mixed hardwood forests."
