Once the most productive grassland in North America, the native Coastal Prairie has essentially vanished. Restoration often means starting over from scratch. Native American Seed is committed to large-scale conservancy harvest on Texas’ last great prairie remnants. Occasionally a miracle of favorable weather, diligent manpower, specialized equipment all come together with mother nature resulting in a resilient abundance. Incredible native diversity is now available to land stewards interested in wildlife habitat improvement, sustainable grazing and prairie conservation. We call it "Eco-System in a Bag"! From land that has never been plowed. From the same grasses walked upon by the people before us. These seeds know exactly how to live right here with no extra care. They have already seen the worst floods, freezes and droughts.

Little Bluestem is a unique genetic ecotype and major component of this mixture. Adapted by evolution to soils and climates along the Gulf Coast states, these seeds are ideally suited to local southern conditions. This mixture is recommended in areas of annual rainfall greater than 28 inches such as Gulf Coast Prairies, Pineywoods, Southeastern Plains and the Coastal Savanna ecoregions.
ECOREGION MAP

Ultimately, survival of native wildlife species such as the endangered Attwater Prairie Chicken depends on people like you to re-create and protect healthy, diverse habitat. From the smallest urban "pocket prairie garden", to the larger 1,000 acre old farm field restoration, all of us will play an increasingly important role in what future world the next generations will inherit. If you know of native prairie remnants suitable for large-scale harvest, please advise. We appreciate your interest in our work.
