Native Bunchgrass

Bunchgrass is a great alternative to turfgrass as a groundcover. And bunchgrass seeds are an excellent source of food for seed-eating birds. Florida has an abundance of native wildflowers and ornamental bunchgrasses to be used to replace large areas of turf. The Florida Native Plant Society lists the following bunchgrasses as great groundcover: Broomsedge, Chalky Bluestem, Elliott's Lovegrass, Fakahatchee Grass, Florida Gamagrass, Lopsided Indian Grass, Muhly Grass, Purple Lovegrass, Sand Cordgrass, Sea Oats and Wiregrass.
