Is there any residual Hairy Peruvian alfalfa around?  
 
This was a popular alfalfa here in Central Texas during the 1950's. The name would suggest a GH variety.

Hairy Peruvian is an old landrace originating from Peru (not surprisingly). It’s relatively non-dormant and was grown in California as well. It is not a glandular haired variety, but does have non-glandular hairs that minimize leafhopper feeding.
