This tall, sturdy, fast-growing native grass is found in wet or moderately moist prairies and freshwater marshes. Prairie Cordgrass spreads through vigorous rhizomatous growth and forms mats to help create sod and prevent soil erosion. Although it prefers wet soil, Prairie Cordgrass tolerates occasional dry conditions. Sturdy green leaves reach up to five feet tall, seven feet with blooms. Birds eat its seeds, and dense stands of Spartina pectinata provide nesting habitat for marshland creatures. Native Americans and settlers used this grass to thatch roofs. This native grass is sought after for wetland restoration projects and wet meadows.
