When six million buffalo stampeded, the sound of their hooves blended into the rolling thunder. Rain was sure to follow... or was it?

With rain came green grass and life. These grasses that evolved in the harshest of climate will surely thrive where people live now. Begin to heal the land and the future climate by planting this shortgrass kit. When established, this grass is a native survivor even if the thunder doesn't produce rain.

In the heat of summer Thunder Turf may go dormant, but upon each subsequent rainfall it greens right up. Self-seeding native perennials. Location pictured left is in extremely thin soil on top of a rocky plateau in the western Hill Country. Average rainfall belt of 17-19 inches. Really cold mornings, such as 1 degree F in winter of 2010 - no problem! Ranges all the way to Sonora desert, 110 degree temps common for places like Phoenix and Tucson - no problem!
