Welcome to Bluestem Nursery and the Wonderful World of Ornamental Grasses!

Bluestem Nursery is a wholesale nursery specializing in ornamental grasses native or adapted to Texas, the Southeast, and the arid Southwest.  Our philosophy is "restoring nature through beautiful landscaping."

BLUESTEM NURSERY prides itself on providing high-quality, species (or selection or cultivar)-specific plants to its customers. We always strive to make sure the customer gains from our interaction, rather than simply exchanging money for goods. Education provides the greatest part of the BLUESTEM NURSERY experience, and is freely given to all purchasers, to promote further use of our products by an educated customer and greater habitat restoration. We are also available as consultants for landscape design advice, habitat restoration, prairie recovery, or wildlife habitat management. Our hope is to encourage others to help us improve the living conditions for both humans and animals, for both our benefits. Rabbits play in our yard nightly, insects whir in the trees, yet little damage is seen in actual nursery stock. No sprays are used in the nursery. Natural predators are encouraged.

The nursery is open only by appointment, to ensure that the customer enjoys our full attention during the visit. Once an appointment is set, the customer will be provided with a map to the nursery and further instructions to help ensure an enjoyable and profitable experience. We are entirely a wholesale operation at this time. Regrettably, we are not large enough to welcome a flood of retail customers. Landscape Architects, Designers, other Growers, Installers and similar green industry members are encouraged to contact us.
