Prairie Biome

PRAIRIE BIOME - The prairie biome is representative of native prairies and wild meadows. This area of the garden consists of a low-growing grass matrix, with different native wildflowers and taller grasses coming up through the ground layer, providing an array of textures and colors that change with the seasons. Bees and other pollinators will take advantage of the nectar from the wildflowers, and the seed heads that follow will feed birds and other wildlife. Many of the plants are used as a host for the larvae of native insects to feed on as they begin a new life cycle before molting into their adult form. The dead blades of grasses from the previous season are often utilized by birds to build their nests.
