Wiregrass Description

Wiregrass is a 3' to 5' tall native perennial that is critical to the Longleaf Pine Ecosystem in the Southeast Coastal Plain. Wire grass is a cool season grass flowering in late spring with a slender seed bearing panicle. Seeds have 3 spreading awns. It grows on well-drained sandy types of soil and full sun or part shade sites. The essential value of Wiregrass is as base fuel for a fire dependent ecosystem and the habitat it provides for wildlife such as bobwhite quail and the endangered gopher turtle in the coastal plain.

Wiregrass Planting Instructions

Sowing must be done before hot weather arrives and after danger of frost is fully past. It grows on well-drained sandy types of soil and full sun or part shade sites.
