Rio Grande Prairie Acacia


Prairie Acacia, also known as fern acacia, is a native, warm season perennial member of the legume family. The Rio Grande Prarie Acacia is a blend of three collections from McMullen, Webb, and Dimmitt counties. A semi-woody legume, the plant is an excellent source of forage for both livestock and wildlife, also providing cover for deer and upland birds. Prairie Acacia’s white to cream flowers bloom from May to November.

It produces high quality forage for all types of grazing livestock (with possibility of toxicity in sheep at high concentrations). Provides both cover and forage for deer and upland game birds.
