Pioneer Pride Grass Mixture is our low elevation prairie mix intended for sites between 4,000 and 5’000′ elevations. It is a mixture of native grasses widely adapted in the prairies of America, from Canada to the Mexico border states.

Along the fringes of the Llano Estacado the terrain begins to transition into rolling grassland, occasionally broken with shallow arroyos where sandy outcroppings occur. These areas slope gently through runoff areas where rainfall finds its way to natural drainage channels or small rivers. This type of terrain once gave cover to the roaming tribes of Indians and the wildlife that migrated to these areas for cover from the weather of the various seasons. Little Bluestem, Galleta, Sideoats Grama, Sand Dropseed, Indian Ricegrass and Alkali Sacaton are the components of this unique blend of native grass seeds whose forage gave sustenance to the wildlife occupants of this diverse sea.

Pioneer Price Grass Mixture contains:

  • Little Bluestem
  • Galleta
  • Sideoats Grama
  • Sand Dropseed
  • Indian Ricegrass
  • Alkali Sacaton.
