Wilson Indiangrass is a native, warm season perennial bunchgrass that grows 5-8’ tall at maturity. It is well adapted to a variety of soil types in the southern half of Texas. It is excellent wildlife cover and produces abundant high quality forage for livestock. Indiangrass is a desirable component of range and wildlife habitat restoration seed mixes, and also makes an attractive ornamental plant.
Wilson Indiangrass was developed by the Texas Native Seeds Program and the USDA NRCS Kingsville Plant Materials Center from native plants collected from a highway right-of-way in Wilson County, Texas. It is ideal for use in the South Texas Sand Sheet, Gulf Coast Prairies and Marshes, and the southern portions of the Edwards Plateau, Blackland Prairie and Post Oak Savannah.
Planting Rate: 3-5 pure live seed (PLS) per acre
