The Native Grasses Of North America

Native GrassThe original native grasses of North America are finally being recognized for their useful and diverse adaptations. Often planted with wildflowers, native grass seed has multiple uses with some of the better known grasses being Switchgrass, Indian Grass, Little Bluestem, and Side Oats Gamma.

There are many different native grass varieties that are gaining favor for use in lawns, erosion control, pastures, bio-mass crops,wetland and wildlife habitat restoration in all areas of the USA. For more on native grasses, such as orchardgrass, for pasture use please see our informational website www.farmseeds.com or our pasture grass seed section at Seedland.com. Both improved native grass seed and original seed species strains are available from Seedland.com.

What Makes A Grass Native

Native grasses: Native grasses are the various regional & national grasses that were original to the particular area of the country (USA). There are varieties that have been adapted for use as lawn turf (buffalo grass) or wildlife and livestock forage. Most of the turf grasses planted in the US today were brought to this country by immigrants or introduced later on by research scientists and plant explorers.

Native grass species, through evolution, have developed resistances to many of the problems that the newer grass varieties haven’t successfully been bred to handle. These native grasses are regional in regards to climate, soils, acidity or alkalinity, insect damage, diseases and symbiotic coexistence with other plants in the surrounding area. Native vegetation is the most logical planting to use in areas where plants or grass will not be maintained by high fertilization, soil additives, watering, and insecticides. Fungicides are generally not needed because of the adaptability of the natives to fight funguses in some manner or, as natural selection would have it, be wiped out. This makes native grass ecologically friendly.

Native grasses are being used more and more in return to the naturalized plantings now being favored through out the country. Many areas of the US are being "reclaimed" using native grass seed plantings. Although man has adapted and changed the genetics of the grasses and plants that we use, we have not always been successful in reaching the basic characteristics that enabled the native or near native species to survive.

Native Grass As Alternative Fuels (Bio Mass)

There is an increasing interest in sustainable biomass feedstock production worldwide due to the high cost and diminishing availability of petroleum-based fuels. Additionally, the concern over global warming caused by fossil fuels has quickened the pace of research into low cost bio-fuels that have significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions and can compete with fossil fuels. The dedicated crop production of biomass feedstocks is becoming a new and fast-paced, agricultural industry.

Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) can be used as a biofuel feedstock in the production of cellulosic ethanol, but it has also been identified as a promising feedstock for pelletized biofuels. The direct combustion of these pellets provides energy for heating, and the pellets can be combusted with coal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Other high-fiber grasses such as Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) and Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans) may also be promising biomass feedstocks for pelletized fuels.

Seedland carries a number of different Switchgrass varieties that are suitable for biomass feedstock production. There are two ecological variants of Switchgrass: upland and lowland. The lowland types are robust, grow very tall and have more rapid growth whereas the upland types are more slender, shorter and slower growing. Our upland or intermediate varieties include Cave-in-Rock, Blackwell, Dacotah, NE 28, Sunburst, and Trailblazer. Our lowland varieties are Alamo and Kanlow.

Beautiful meadows can be made when mixing native grasses and wildflowers. Native grasses are natural to the environment in which they grow.

Native & Range Grasses

NATIVE Species are grass species that have been found in the USA for over 200 years.

NON - NATIVE Species
Sometimes confused as Native due to the length of time they have been planted and used in USA.

Native Grass Uses

Native grass seed and other plants are in demand more now than ever for erosion control purposes, bio-fuels, and to reintroduce habitat that has been destroyed. The beauty and versatility of these natural grasses are being used extensively all over the country. With little fertilization and very little work these grasses can work for anyone in their areas of adaptation.

Bluebonnets with Native Grass MeadowNative grasses in meadow plantings can be quite beautiful and can be planted with wildflowers especially bluebonnets. The attractive colorings and low height of the grass with the taller flowers gives a nice contrast. Since the grass does not have to be mown, seasonal wildflowers can be incorporated. A small wild flower garden with native grass would be low maintenance with the native grass helping to keep any moisture in the ground for the wildflowers.

Ornamental / Rangeland / Ecological / Wildlife Native Grass Mixtures

Seedland offers a selection of native grass seed varieties blended and selected for  regional native grass use. These mixes are ideal for planting for rangeland pastures, ornamental or ecological & wildlife cover reasons. - These mixes are NOT intended for use as a stabilization mixture.
