<h2><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Bassia scoparia Seeds Burning Bush</strong></span></h2> <h2><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong><span style="font-size:14pt;">Price for Package of 25 or 100 seeds.</span></strong></span></h2> <div> <div>Bassia scoparia (synonym Kochia scoparia) is an annual shrub native to Eurasia. It has introduced populations in many parts of North America, where it is found in grassland, prairie, and desert shrub ecosystems. Its vernacular names include burningbush, ragweed, summer cypress, fireball, belvedere and Mexican firebrush, Mexican fireweed. It may be planted in almost any climate zone in early spring.</div> <div>Mexican Firebrush (B. S. trichophylla) is a cultivar of B. scoparia that turns bright red in the fall. They easily self-seed and can become a weed if not controlled.</div> <div> <div>Biology</div> <div>The seed of Bassia scoparia is dispersed by wind, water, and especially by the whole plant detaching and tumbling in the wind (see Tumbleweed). The seed does not persist in the soil seed bank, but either germinates or dies within about a year.</div> <div>Bassia scoparia is a C4 plant, specifically of the NADP-ME type.</div> <div>Uses</div> <div>Uses of Bassia scoparia include human food and traditional medicine, forage for livestock, and erosion control.</div> <div>Tonburi</div> <div> <div>The seeds of Bassia scoparia are eaten as a food garnish called tonburi (とんぶり?) (Japanese). Its texture is similar to caviar, and it also is called "land caviar", "field caviar" and "mountain caviar". In Japan, tonburi is a delicacy (chinmi) of Akita prefecture. After harvesting the seeds are dried. To prepare them, the seeds are boiled and soaked in cold water for about a day, then rubbed by hand to remove the outer skin. The seeds are 1–2 mm in diameter, glossy with a black-green color.</div> <div>Tonburi also is used in traditional Chinese medicine. It may prevent metabolic disorders such as hyperlipidemia, hypertension, obesity and atherosclerosis. In a study of mice fed a high-fat diet, an extract of tonburi did limit obesity. Bassia scoparia seeds contain momordin Ic, a triterpene saponin.</div> <div>Forage</div> <div>The plant is a moderately useful forage for livestock, and a potential forage crop for dry lands.However, its use is limited by toxicity when fed in large quantities. Livestock grazing principally on lush stands of Bassia scoparia sometimes experience weight loss, hyperbilirubinemia, photosensitization, and polyuria. When used as the only feed for weeks, Bassia scoparia hay may cause toxicity in cattle.</div> <div>Other</div> <div> <div>Bassia scoparia is planted for ornament or erosion control. It is a known hyperaccumulator of Chromium, Lead, Mercury, Selenium, Silver, Zinc, and Uranium , and as such can be used for phytoremediation.</div> <div>Systematics</div> <div>The species was first published in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus, who named it Chenopodium scoparium. In 1809, it was included into the genus Kochia by Heinrich Schrader, and in 1978, into genus Bassia by A.J.Scott. Recent phylogenetic research confirmed, that Kochia has to be included in Bassia.

<div id="idTab1" class="rte"> <h2><span style="font-size:14pt;"><strong>Blue Grass Seeds Festuca Glauca Intense Blue</strong></span></h2> <h2><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong><span style="font-size:14pt;">Price for Package of 10 seeds.</span></strong></span></h2> <div>Hardy Perennial. <span style="font-size:11pt;line-height:1.5em;">Dainty diminutive Festuca glauca makes a tight mound of steely blue, needle-like blades and is one of the most tactile of the evergreen grasses. A new flush of blue-grey leaves appears by early spring and makes a fine foil for bright, low-growing bulbs. Planted as a specimen or in swathes across a high - summer garden, the colour is so unexpected it can't help but catch the eye.</span> <p class="description">Festuca glauca is not a showy specimen plant but in a minimalist scheme, against a backing of slate and red chippings, it adds texture, colour and interest. These fescues look terrific planted in a silver-blue swathe among taller grasses: weave them through dark carexes or plant them around the base of deschampsias, molinias or miscanthus.<br />Good companions - Small, sun-loving plants such as rock roses, thymes, smaller erodiums and single, low-growing pinks, mingle well with this grass on a scree or slope. Alternatively, dark-leaved sedums and the strappy-leaved black Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens' provide a strong contrast to the clumps.<br />Dark-purple lavenders of every type, the large-leaved sage (Salvia officinalis), lamb's ears (Stachys byzantina) and the ponytail grass (Stipa tenuissima) make good companions in a sunny border of silvers.<br />For a striking spring partnership, team blue fescue with Crocus chrysantha 'Blue Pearl' and 'Ladykiller', pink and red species tulips or deep-blue scillas.</p> <p>Sowing: Sow in Spring, February to April<br />Festuca glauca germinates easily from seed sown in spring. Sow in well drained soil and keep at around 20ºC (68ºF). Germinates in about two weeks<br />Once seedlings are large enough to handle, take a small clump of seedlings and put them all in a one-litre pot of gritty compost. They will form a bushy plant and be ready to go into the garden in summer. Grow in sun and in well drained soil. Sow 6mm (¼in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Germination is occasionally slow, so be patient! <br />Thin out the seedlings to 23cm (9in) apart. Replant the seedlings that have been removed</p> <p>Cultivation: <br />Feed in spring like ordinary perennials, with a single dressing of a general fertiliser. Even without an annual feed, most grasses will put on a first-rate show. The more nitrogen grasses receive the greener and further they'll grow. This spreading habit is fine in a field, but in a garden they may become too lush and the flower quality may suffer.</p> <p>Division: <br />Once the plant is established, divide in March to April. It is relatively easy to propagate by division. Do this in spring, not autumn, as some newly divided plants may rot before they've developed a good root system.</p> <p>Plant Uses: <br />Architectural, Cottage/Informal Garden, Drought Resistant, Flower Arranging, Flowers Borders and Beds, Green Roof, Low Maintenance, Mediterranean or Maritime. </p> <p>Origin: <br />Native to Europe, it was originally described by French naturalist Dominique Villars.</p> <p>Nomenclature: <br />Festuca is derived from the Latin <em>festuca</em> meaning ’stalk or straw’. <br />The species name glauca is derived from the Greek word <em>glaucous</em> meaning ‘blue grey’ in reference to the colour of the leaves. <br />It is commonly known as the Blue Fescue, Blue Mountain Grass, and Grey Fescue</p> </div> </div>

Platycerium is a genus of about 18 species of ferns, four of which occur in eastern Australia. Two, the elkhorn (Platycerium bifurcatum) and the staghorn (P.superbum) are well-known in cultivation.</div> <div>Staghorns are generally epiphytic (growing on trees), or occasionally lithophytic (growing on rocks). These ferns have broad nest fronds, or sterile fronds, to 60 cm diameter, which grow and embrace the host and from a humus-collecting bowl, which can reach impressive dimensions of 1 metre across. The laminae of these fronds are erect and simple with deeply lobed upper margins. Fertile fronds are quite different in appearance, being broad at the base and hanging down from the plant, with forked laminae up to 200 cm in length and 2-6 cm wide. . The Staghorn entirely lacks the ability to produce plantlets, and the single plant simply gets larger each season. Brown sori, which contain spores, occur on the underside of the fertile fronds.</div> <div>In nature, these ferns often grow high up in trees, where they receive much light filtering through the canopy. Similarly, plenty of light is important for good growth in cultivation and dense shade is resented. Filtered sunlight with some humidity is best. </div> <div>Growing Platycerium from spore is not difficult given the right techniques and conditions. This species is frost tender and will not tolerate temperatures below 1*C. Some protection from drying wind is important, however, overwatering must be avoided. If the peaty centre remains continually wet, rot may occur and eventually kill the fern. Soaking intermittently, say, once weekly (but also depending on rainfall) is best. Fertilise with liquid organic fertilisers and sprinkle about 5g slow release fertiliser capsules into the bowl at intervals. Every few months place small pieces of aged hardened cow manure in the bowl. Staghorn ferns appreciate a slightly acidic environment and some growers find the remnants of a teapot emptied into the bowl to be helpful.</div> <div>Because of their relatively large size, staghorn ferns are rarely grown in pots except when small specimens are purchased. Utilizing their natural growth habit, staghorn ferns are well suited for mounting on cypress wood or tree fern fiber plaque or wire baskets. To mount a fern on a slab of wood, place a few handfuls of growing medium on the wood slightly below center, shaping it in a circular mound. Place the fern on the medium so the bud is slightly below center of the mount and basal fronds are in contact with the medium. Using wire (not copper) or plastic stripping, secure the fern tightly to its mount. This same method is also used for tree fern fiber plaques. Wire baskets can also be used when packed with medium and hung so the top of the basket is vertical. The fern is secured to the basket using wire or plastic stripping. Clay pots can also be used if hung sideways. </div> <div>Remounting to larger containers will be needed periodically as the fern grows. How often these are remounted depends on the size of the original mount, rate of medium breakdown, and growth rate of the fern. When the basal fronds reach the sides of the mount, it's time to place the fern on a larger mount. If the staghorn fern becomes too large, it may become impractical to remove the fern from its mount. In this case, enlarging the original mount periodically is suggested.</div> </div>

<h2><strong>Grass Pampas White Seeds (Cortaderia Selloana)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 15 seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>Tall, white-flushed, feathery plumes in late summer above large mounds of sharp-edged, mid-green leaves. This unusual pink form of pampas grass looks wonderful planted by water or set in the middle of a sunny, well-drained lawn. The real show starts in midsummer when the flowers, spectacular 30cm (12in) tall plumes, suddenly erupt above the foliage. The show continues well into winter as the feathery plumes persist and the foliage turns golden brown when touched by frost and cold weather.</p> <p>Impressive size, graceful aspect, durable toughness, and spectacular flowers all combine to make pampas grass one of the most recognized plants in the landscape. The leaves are narrow and arranged in dense fountain-like clumps.</p> <p>Female plants have wider, fuller flowers - the males' are thinner, more elongated and not as full. This garden beauty commands attention wherever it is used.</p> <h3><strong>Aftercare:</strong></h3> <p>Fertilizing ornamental grasses can result in over-lush growth and unmanageability. Don't be disappointed if your young plant does not have plumes for the first two or three years. When established plants do not form plumes, it is usually because they have been overwatered or fed too heavily, which would tend to stimulate foliage growth instead of plumes.</p> <h3><strong>Cultivation:</strong></h3> <p>Pampas grass grows well on a range of soil types but thrives in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. After a time the tussocks can become very large and congested with old, dead foliage. Cutting back and combing regularly in late winter or spring should minimize the dead foliage and keep the tussock compact. Because of its sharp leaf margins, pampas grass was commonly burnt in its native habitat to control its spread, but in the garden, burning can be dangerous not only for the gardener but because pampas grass is a favorite place for hedgehogs to hibernate.</p> <h3><strong>Drying:</strong></h3> <p>Pampas Grass can be dried and make interesting focal or secondary flowers in dried arrangements. To dry, cut the flower at the height of bloom and hang upside down in a cool, dark place to dry.</p> <h3><strong>Plant Uses:  </strong></h3> <p>Architectural, Cottage/Informal Garden, Drought Resistant, Flower Arranging, Flowers Borders and Beds, Low Maintenance or the Mediterranean.</p> <p>Hardy Perennial.</p> <div> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0"><tbody><tr><td class="bucket normal"> <div class="content"> <ul><li><span style="color:#008000;">BLOOM TIME: Late Summer</span></li> <li><span style="color:#008000;">HARDINESS ZONE: 7 - 10</span></li> <li><span style="color:#008000;">PLANT HEIGHT: 96 - 144" . . .

<div id="idTab1" class="rte"> <h2><span style="font-size: 14pt;"><strong>New Zealand flax - Flax lily Seeds (Phormium tenax)</strong></span></h2> <h2><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Price for Package of 3 seeds.</span></strong></span></h2> <div>Phormium is a genus of two plant species in the Xanthorrhoeaceae family. One species is endemic to New Zealand and the other is native to New Zealand and Norfolk Island. The two species are widely known in New Zealand as 'flax' and elsewhere as New Zealand flax or Flax lily but are not related to Flax which is native to the region extending from the eastern Mediterranean to India and which was used by humans in 30,000 B.C.</div> <div>Taxonomy</div> <div>Phormium is an herbaceous perennial monocot. Monocot classification has undergone significant revision in the past decade, and recent classification systems (including the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group) have found Phormium to be closely related to daylilies (Hemerocallis). Phormium formerly belonged to the family Agavaceae and many classification systems still place it there. It includes two species, Phormium colensoi and Phormium tenax. It also includes many cultivars.</div> <div>The genus was originally established by the German naturalists Johann Reinhold Forster and his son Georg Forster in 1775 from specimens of Phormium tenax collected by both Forsters and the Swedish naturalist Anders Erikson Sparrman. All of them were part of the second expedition of Captain James Cook aboard the Resolution (1772–1775).[4] The type specimens were taken from Queen Charlotte Sound, with additional specimens from both Norfolk Island and North Island, New Zealand. The name Phormium comes from Ancient Greek for "basket", while tenax was Latin for "strong".</div> <div>Description and ecology</div> <div>The tough, sword-shaped leaves grow up to three metres long and up to 125 mm wide. They are usually darkish green but sometimes have coloured edges and central ribs. Cultivated varieties range from light green through pink to deep russet bronze. There are numerous variegated cultivars with leaves marked by contrasting stripes in shades of green, red, bronze, pink and yellow.</div> <div>The rigid flower stalks can be up to five metres long, projecting high above the foliage. In November (in New Zealand) they produce clumps of curving tube-like flowers which turn bright red when mature. These produce unusually large quantities of nectar to attract all nectar feeding birds such as the tui and insects. The seedpods that develop after pollination, each contain hundreds of seeds which are later widely dispersed by the wind.</div> <div>Distribution and habitat</div> <div>P. tenax occurs naturally in New Zealand and Norfolk Island, while P. colensoi is endemic to New Zealand. Both species have been widely distributed to temperate regions of the world as economic fibre and ornamental plants.</div> <div>They are found mainly in swamps or low lying areas but will grow just about anywhere.<hr></div> <div> <div><span style="color: #008000;"><strong>Sowing: &nbsp;</strong>Spring (Feb to April) or in Autumn (Sept to Oct)</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Sow at maximum 16 to 18°C (60 to 65°F), covering them with a thin layer of peaty compost. Kept moist but not wet at all times. Germination can be erratic, between 30 to 180 days</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Prick out each seedling as it becomes large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Grow on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for 10 to 15days before planting out. You may find them rather lax as youngsters but they develop a strong upright habit rather quickly.</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;"><strong>Cultivation:</strong></span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Once established, Phormium require only the minimum of care and are hardy to minus -5°C (23°F), but in frost prone areas, it is worth covering plants with a deep mulch of well-rotted compost or straw in winter. &nbsp;</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Healthy plants soon grow into a large clump as new fans of leaves develop around the older ones. These eventually develop their own roots and can be detached from the parent plant. It is probably best to cut back some of the leaves of the young plant to reduce the water demand while it is getting established. Even if all the roots get broken off, most pieces will root again if kept moist.</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Plants can be divided in spring. Dig up the whole plant then divide it into several pieces using a spade or knife.</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Plants growing in pots can be un-potted, freed of most of the soil and small sections broken off. The roots can be carefully teased apart leaving as many as possible attached to each offset. The pieces can then be planted separately.</span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;"><strong>Plant Uses: &nbsp;</strong></span></div> <div><span style="color: #008000;">Architectural, Tropical, Containers, Cultivated Beds.</span></div> </div> </div><script src="//cdn.public.n1ed.com/G3OMDFLT/widgets.js"></script>

<h2><strong>Organic Cat Grass Seeds (Dactylis glomerata)</strong></h2> <h2><span style="color:#ff0000;"><strong>Price for Package of 100 seeds.</strong></span></h2> <p>Cat grass (or catgrass) is a type of cereal grass such as oat grass or wheat grass which can be grown indoors from seeds. Once sprouted, the leaves of the cat grass plant can be fed to your cat or other pet as a treat to help satisfy their craving for greens.</p> <p><strong>Why do cats need Cat Grass?</strong></p> <p><strong>Here are some of the wheatgrass benefits for pets</strong></p> <p>    Nutritionally complete food</p> <p>    Studies by scientists have shown it to never be toxic in animals or humans</p> <p>    Gives energy &amp; stamina</p> <p>    Reverses illness</p> <p>    Protection of toxins- including aging and combats free radicals</p> <p>    Rejuvenates blood</p> <p>    Helps shed pounds by detoxifying the body</p> <p>    DNA repair</p> <p>    Blood cleansing and building abilities of chlorophyll</p> <p>    Builds blood and stimulates circulation</p> <p>    Stimulates and regenerates the liver</p> <p>    Deodorizes body</p> <p>Wheatgrass is absolutely safe for pets. All pets. This includes dogs, cats, hamsters, etc. In fact, because it has so many nutrients and a high concentration of chlorophyll it will do nothing but good for them. Cats and dogs can digest the wheatgrass fiber well, unlike humans, which bodies do better with wheatgrass juice.</p> <p>Wheatgrass is packed with essential vitamins and nutrients that keep your mind and body healthy and vibrant. Taking a "shot" of juiced wheatgrass as part of your morning breakfast routine is considered a healthy way to start the day, but it can get very expensive. If you want to make wheatgrass a regular part of your diet, try growing it yourself at home instead of buying it already juiced.</p> <p><strong>Prepare the seeds for soaking.</strong></p> <p>Measure out enough seeds to create a light layer on the seed tray you use to grow the grass.</p> <p>    Rinse the seeds in cool, clean water using a colander with very small holes or a strainer. Drain them well and put them in a bowl.</p> <p><strong>Soak the seeds.</strong> Soaking the seeds initiates germination. By the end of the process, the seeds will have sprouted small roots.</p> <p>    Pour cold water, preferably filtered, into the bowl of seeds. Add about 3 times as much water as you have seeds. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and place it on the counter to soak for about 10 hours, or overnight.</p> <p>    Drain the water from the seeds and replace it with more cold, filtered water - again, about 3 times as much water as you have seeds. Let it soak for another 10 hours.</p> <p>    Repeat the process one more time, for a total of three long soaks.</p> <p>    By the end of the last soak, the seeds should have sprouted roots. This means they are ready to plant. Drain them and set them aside until you're ready to plant them.</p> <p><strong>Prepare the seed tray for planting.</strong> Line the seed tray with paper towels, to prevent the wheatgrass roots from growing through the holes in the bottom of the tray. Spread an even two-inch layer of organic compost or potting soil in the seed tray.</p> <p>    If possible, use paper towels that have not been treated with chemicals or dyes. Recycled, chemical-free paper towels are available at health food stores.</p> <p>    Use pre-moistened compost or potting soil free of pesticides or other chemicals. It's important to use organic soil to get the most benefit from your wheatgrass.</p> <p><strong>Plant the seeds.</strong> Spread the seeds in an even layer across the top of the compost or potting soil. Lightly press the seeds into the soil, but don't completely bury them.</p> <p>    It's fine if the seeds are touching each other, but make sure there's not a pile of seeds in one area. Each seed needs a little room to grow.</p> <p>    Water the tray lightly, making sure each seed gets a sprinkle.</p> <p>    Cover the tray with a few moistened sheets of newspaper to protect the seedlings.</p> <p><strong>Keep the seeds moist.</strong> It's important to make sure the seeds don't dry out in the first few days after you plant them. Keep them damp as they root themselves in the seed tray.</p> <p>    Lift the newspaper and water the tray thoroughly in the morning so that the soil is wet, but not completely waterlogged.</p> <p>    Use a spray bottle filled with water to lightly mist the soil in the evening before you go to bed, so the seedlings don't dry out overnight. Spray the newspaper, too, so it keeps them wet.</p> <p>    After four days, remove the newspaper. Continue watering the sprouted grass once a day.</p> <p><strong>Keep the grass in partial sunlight.</strong> Direct sun will damage the grass, so make sure it is always in a shady place in your home.</p>

The horizontal eyelash-like chartreuse flowers appear in mid-summer and age to blonde seed heads by fall. They are held on the plant right through the winter to provide many months of interest.</p> <p>Plant Select Winner 2011 30-36" tall x 30-36" wide. An exceptionally large growing selection of our native Blue Grama Grass, Bouteloua gracilis Blonde Ambition has 2 1/2 to 3 ft. tall stems of flowers that mature to long lasting blonde seed heads. These flag-like flowers rise up out of the blue-green foliage in mid-summer and are held on stiff, weather resistant stems. 'Blonde Ambition' Blue Grama Grass provides exceptional winter interest as the stems of seed heads pop up even after a heavy snow and remain standing through winter, giving the grass 6 to 8 months of garden color and texture.</p> <p>Seldom does a new grass selection offer the gardener something so completely different and exciting. Its profusion of big, showy chartreuse flowers, held horizontally above the leaves is unlike any other ornamental grass in cultivation. This beauty is extremely cold hardy, grows in a wide range of soil types and is a perfect choice for low maintenance home or commercial landscapes. 'Blonde Ambition' Grass is native to 26 states and performs well across the country, particularly in hardiness zones 4-9. Cut back old stems to 2-3” above ground-level in mid-spring. Divide every third year. Discovered and introduced by David Salman of High Country Gardens. (Propagated by division).</p> <p>2011 High Country Gardens Plant of the Year. Blonde Ambition Blue Grama Grass was named by the Plant Select gardeners' survey as the best perennial of 2013.</p> <p><strong><em>Planting Guides</em></strong></p> <p>Caring For Blonde Ambition Blue Grama Grass</p> <p>Cutting back Blonde Ambition Blue Grama Grass (Bouteloua gracilis Blonde Ambition) should be done in mid-spring when the new green grass blades begin to sprout from the crown. The stems holding the seed heads are very resilient and stay upright even after a snowy winter, so the grass looks good until mid-spring.</p> <p>Cut back to a height of 2 to 3 inches above ground level and scratch out the crown with gloved hands to loosen thatch and make room for the new growth to push up and out.</p> <p>Mulching: Blonde Ambition (and many ornamental grasses) don't need mulching. But if planted in a mulched bed, Blonde Ambition is very adaptable as to the type of mulch. We recommend that the mulch layer around the plant be thin (less than an inch deep).</p> <h2>WIKIPEDIA:</h2> <p>Bouteloua gracilis (blue grama) is a long-lived, warm-season (C4) perennial grass, native to North America.</p> <p>It is most commonly found from Alberta, Canada, east to Manitoba and south across the Rocky Mountains, Great Plains, and U.S. Midwest states, onto the northern Mexican Plateau in Mexico.</p> <p>Blue grama accounts for most of the net primary productivity in the shortgrass prairie of the central and southern Great Plains. It is a green or greyish, low-growing, drought-tolerant grass with limited maintenance.</p> <p>Blue grama grows on a wide array of topographic positions, and in a range of well-drained soil types, from fine to coarse-textured.</p> <p>Blue grama has green to greyish leaves less than 3 millimetres (0.1 in) wide and 1 to 10 inches (25 to 250 mm) long. The overall height of the plant is 6 to 12 in (15 to 30 cm) at maturity.[3]</p> <p>The flowering stems (culms) are 7 to 18 inches (18 to 46 cm) long. There are typically two comb-like spikes, each with 20 to 90 spikelets, that extend out at a sharp angle from the flowering stem.</p> <p>Each spikelet is 5 to 6 mm (0.20 to 0.24 in) long. There is one fertile floret with a lemma (bract) 5 to 5.5 mm (0.20 to 0.22 in) long, with three short awns (bristles) at the tip, and one reduced sterile floret about 2 mm (0.08 in) long with three awns about 5 mm (0.2 in) long.</p> <p>The roots generally grow 12 to 18 inches (30 to 46 cm) outwards, and 3 to 6.5 feet (0.9 to 2.0 m) deep.</p> <p>Blue grama is readily established from seed, but depends more on vegetative reproduction via tillers. Seed production is slow, and depends on soil moisture and temperature. Seeds dispersed by wind only reach a few meters (6 ft); farther distances are reached with insects, birds, and mammals as dispersal agents. Seedling establishment, survival, and growth are greatest when isolated from neighboring adult plants, which effectively exploit water in the seedling's root zone. Successful establishment requires a modest amount of soil moisture during the extension and development of adventitious roots.</p> <p>Established plants are grazing-, cold-, and drought-tolerant, though prolonged drought leads to a reduction in root number and extent. They employ an opportunistic water-use strategy, rapidly using water when available, and becoming dormant during less-favorable conditions. In terms of successional status, blue grama is a late seral to climax species. Recovery following disturbance is slow and depends on the type and extent of the disturbance.</p> <p><strong>Horticulture and agriculture</strong></p> <p>Blue grama is valued as forage.</p> <p>Bouteloua gracilis is grown by the horticulture industry, and used in perennial gardens; naturalistic and native plant landscaping; habitat restoration projects; and in residential, civic, and highway erosion control. Blue Grama flowers are also used in dried flower arrangements.</p> <p>Blue grama is the state grass of Colorado and New Mexico. It is listed as an endangered species in Illinois.</p> <p>Among the Zuni people, the grass bunches are tied together and the severed end used as a hairbrush, the other as a broom. Bunches are also used to strain goat's milk.</p> <p><strong>Garden Uses</strong></p> <p>Small size makes blue grama grass an excellent selection for rock gardens where it can be used as a specimen or in small groups. Also an excellent choice for naturalized areas, native plant gardens, unmowed meadows, prairie areas or other informal areas in the landscape, especially where drought tolerant plants are needed. Can also be grown as a turf grass and regularly mowed to 2 inches high. Flower spikes are an excellent addition for dried flower arrangements.</p> <p><strong>Culture</strong></p> <p>Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerates a wide range of soils, except poorly-drained, wet ones. Excellent drought tolerance. Freely self-seeds. Cut to the ground in late winter before new shoots appear.</p>
