Beachgrass is native to the Atlantic Coast and the Great Lakes. It is more strongly rhizomatous, less sensitive to high temperatures and somewhat longer-lived than European beachgrass. American beachgrass is a tough, coarse, erect perennial with hard, scaly, creeping rhizomes and dense, spike-like seedheads. Seed is generally infertile. American beachgrass has proved to be the best plant for initial stabilization of moving sand. Stems from the plant form a mechanical barrier which slows and then traps moving sand.
We are now accepting orders for spring harvest. We have a limited supply, so please submit an order online to reserve your plants. Pick-up dates can be flexible, beginning mid-April through early May. When purchasing through our webstore, be sure to put your preferred pick-up dates in the comments section. Pick-up will be at our office in Scottville. If you need your order shipped, please make a note of that in the comments section as well. You will be charged $35 shipping for every 3 bundles of 500 (one box). Call the office to make arrangements for out of state orders. Please keep in mind that we do not have staff on hand that are consistently harvesting, so it may take up to 2 weeks to process your order.
