Summary

Big Four Native Grass Mix is a blend of Little Bluestem, Big Bluestem, Indiangrass, and Switchgrass are the legendary “Four Horsemen” of the Tallgrass Prairie. These species are the nucleus of the prairiegrass ecosystem that once covered most of the central plains of North America. They are all excellent forage producers that make forage nature’s way without planting invasive, introduced grass species which require expensive inputs . They are well adapted to both upland and lowland sites. The Big 4 are the workhorse native grasses which are heat and drought tolerant and will provide permanent cover and forage production. The Big 4 Mix is big on performance and value.
