I have stones in back yard but want to plant small area for my desert tortoise. I live in Las Vegas
and it's very hot. What kind of grass can I grow for food? And any ideas where I should purchase it?

Thanks
Carol

Not saying that all of these grasses are good to feed, BUT, American Meadows has a lot of native blends available On their web site. A lot of the normal grass seeds normally recommended are probably not good for the harsh Los Vegas climate. So, Take a look at American Meadows. They have many options, including a Southwest blend

Bermuda grass should live, and that is a good tortoise food.

My climate is also hot and dry and this one has done very well for me:
