Description

In cooperation with the Texas Nature Conservancy, Native American Seed is producing Upland Switchgrass that was originally collected from the TNC Clymer Meadow in the blacklands of North Central Texas. This Switchgrass is shorter, growing up to about 3 feet with seedheads 1 to 2 feet. It is more compact and not nearly as agressive as other Switchgrasses. Upland Switchgrass is well-suited for dry, sunny areas but will also grow in wet areas next to the water's edge. It attracts dove, quail, turkey and many songbirds with abundant seeds. Valued for high quaility grazing forage.

Tips on Planting Live Roots

You'll receive roots that will make 10 to 15 plants or more. Plant roots as soon as you receive them. Then give a good deep watering for easy establishment.

Order by 11am on Monday. We dig and ship roots every Tuesday with 1-2 days UPS delivery (out of state extra charges may apply). Please be ready to plant & water your roots A.S.A.P. after receipt of order. Our goal is to ship roots on Tuesdays but from time to time mother nature has her own plans. If your shipment of roots is time critical, please call to make special arrangements. If you also have seeds in your order that you want to be shipped sooner, please advise on comment section of your order. Additional shipping will be charged.
