Hundredfold 500 Deer Tongue Grass Seeds – Deer-Tongue Ontario Native Grass, Excellent for Ground Cover, Restoration and Erosion Control
Deer tongue grass is a native grass with an exotic bamboo-like appearance. The winter rosettes of this plant make a good evergreen ground cover. It prefers partial sun, moist conditions, and sandy soil. Under ideal conditions, this grass can spread aggressively.
Because the plant tolerates acid soils and thin, infertile soils, it can be used to re-vegetate reclaimed land such as mine spoils.
Hundredfold Notes: We conducted a quick survey in a big box store nursery recently in Toronto. Only one species of native plant, which was false blue indigo was found among dozens of species. The ornamental grasses were all introduced outside of North America.
Restore native vegetation starting from one's own backyard. Install these native deer tongue grasses today, and you will enjoy more visits from birds and butterflies.
