Native Grasses

Many of the important grasses are native, or have origins, to the United States.  The Grasslands of the United States have been divided into the native tall-grass region of the east and the short-grass region in the west.  The tall-grasses include Big bluestem, Switchgrass, Sand bluestem, Eastern Gamagrass, and Indiangrass.  Buffalograss, Blue grama, and Sideoats grama are examples of some of the short native grasses.  Native grasses have historically been thought of as only forage for livestock, but now are more commonly used planted for soil stabilization, wildlife food and cover, and landscape use.
