I've been so pleased with the way our grass has weathered the last month of high temperatures. That's no real credit to us; the native grasses grow deep roots and are "warm-season" growers. Most of the grazing land in eastern Kansas and surroundings is managed for "cool-season" grasses that can out-perform my natives in the early spring.
