Small Burnett



Small Burnett stays green throughout the growing season and into winter until heavy snow cover occurs, providing forage and seed to livestock and wildlife into the winter season. Although not recommended to be seeded on its own small burnet is desirable forage for elk, deer, and birds either as herbage or seed, and even cover for smaller animals. In addition to its wildlife uses it also has a noted value in mixes designed for erosion control due to its leafy plant structure and root system.
