Taeniatherum caput-medusae is also an invasive winter annual with similar growth and life cycles to ventenata and bromus tectorum. Montana has similar moisture precipitation patterns as Medusahead’s native region of Eurasia. Medusahead has minimal forage value for wildlife and lifestock because of being high in silica.
