Typically growing 1′-4′ tall, Calfornia brome is a native bunchgrass that is tolerant of many soil types, including clay. With a range that extends from Alaska to northern Mexico, California brome grows in many different habitat types in sun to part-shade. An important wildlife plant, California brome is attractive to birds and insects that eat the seeds, and it is a larval host plant for numerous butterfly species that use native grasses as larval host plants. It is drought tolerant and wind pollinated.
