Native American Seed - Wildflowers and Native Prairie Grasses



Here's a bit about their history and mission:

Long before beginning Native American Seed in 1988, we had already dedicated our work to restoring integrity in relationships between people, wildlife, land, water and plants. The work has always been about connections of all kinds...among all the relative beings. The integrity of our seeds comes from the natives only that we grow.

Planting native seeds is one small, but important step in safeguarding the web of life. Many sensible people are now enjoying the adventure, discovery and benefits that come with taking an active role in ecological landscape restoration.



Jan and Bill Neiman founded Native American Seed in 1989.

Our staff invite you to Shop for Natives and explore the full pallet of native wildflowers, grasses, unique conservancy species and mixes. Native American Seed is committed to preventing the spread of invasive species.

They have cute Gift Certificates available that they call Seed Money, packaged with their current print catalog.

They also offer a variety of plantable gifts, for example the "Wings that Sing Kit" has the Hummers & Singers Mix with the book "Hummingbirds of Texas"

I give this seed source 10 out of 10 acorns

Instead of ordering online, we visited the Native American Seed facilities back in 2014.  They have a very nice mail order operation.  Their offices and warehouses are spacious and clean.   And the fields of flowers are beautiful.

I have found their seeds do well for me. For example, we planted the seed in Oct 2014 since you plant wildflower seed in the fall. We have not had to plant them again as the flowers have come back every year. I was very happy with my purchases of blue bonnets, firewheels and other wildflowers.  I am happy to recommend their native grasses.  My 40 acre property is all native grasses.  I am especially fond of the buffalograss, buchloe dactyloides.  

I love receiving  their print catalog each year and I love all the information provided on each plant.  The pictures are beautiful, they give the common name and the scientific name, whether it is annual or perennial, when it blooms, the heights, soil types, how much sunlight it needs, and soil moisture needed. They also show what the seedlings will look like.

I highly recommend Native American Seed.
