Abstract

Wildflowers complement our state’s beautiful landscapes with flashes of vibrant colors, but they also serve another purpose: they attract wildlife. A mixture of Iowa’s native grasses and forbs provides excellent wildlife habitat for pheasant, quail, rabbit, many songbirds and other species. Native prairie plants provide nesting, feeding, loafing, and escape habitat. The benefits of native plants are many, but establishing such a stand takes planning and care.
