AbstractCompares the rooting depth, plant height, and adaptation to roadside conditions of 16 native grasses and five amenity grasses with red fescue to identify species that could be used to control erosion on roadsides. Schizachyrium scoparium and Eragrostis spectabilis were similar in height to red fescue while rooting significantly more deeply.
