Indiangrass Native Grass Plugs - Sorghastrum nutans ‘Cheyenne’
Indiangrass- Native Grass Plugs - Sorghastrum nutans ‘Cheyenne’
Indiangrass is a perennial native warm-season grass with that obtains heights of 4-8 feet at its peak. The clumps of blue tinged grass send up large seed heads that turn a really nice amber color at maturity. Like the other native warm season grasses, indiangrass is becoming more and more popular as a low maintenance accent for flowerbeds and such. We raise our native grasses with the same methods as our trees, so you can be assured they will easily transplant and thrive whether incorporated into your front yard or along the edge of an opening at your property. Aside from its good looks, indiangrass provides habitat for a wide range of species including insects, deer, songbirds, quail, rabbits, and turkeys.
Our native warm season grass (NWSG) plugs are grown using the same rapid mast system we use on our highly productive and easy to establish tree seedlings. NWSG’s can also be established by planting seeds, but using our large plugs can save time and money for applications such as logging decks, screening cover, native landscaping, hiding your favorite ground blind, combating erosion problems near streams, ditches or levees, or simply because you want to raise them yourself and scatter seed collected from these starter plugs. NWSG’s can be slow to establish from seed, but with a generous root system already in place and some competition control, our plugs can grow to large sizes and produce ample seed in its first year. For more detailed information on establishment and management techniques for your NWSG plugs, give us a call or email.
They’ve been in the ground less than a week so I can’t really give you a review say how good or bad they are. Contact me in 6 months or so.
Healthy root system
The plugs came in and they all looked very good. Full root system and beautiful tillers. Thank you so much. I will be ordering more plants from you. Natives are essential to life on earth!
Our growing season hasn't started for the grass plugs yet but I was blown away by the root structure of these things. Had some trouble breaking the root ball up but I am looking forward to seeing how they grow this summer
Right now it is dormant, but hopefully it will come alive and be gorgeous.
