|Common Name(s)||Pitted Bluegrass|
A tufted, perennial, warm season grass, normally reaching 1m in height. Inflorescences to 7cm long produce a notable fragrance when crushed, unlike Dicanthium sericeum for which it may be mistaken.
Bothriochloa decipiens is an important species in rehabilitation. It is naturally widespread, common and establishes well from direct seeding on many soil types. May dominate pasture under continous grazing pressure, sometimes co-dominating with another native grass, Sporobolus creba.
Common within its range.
