Native Seed Project

We have recently finished sowing 4 of our native seed collections into seedling trays!  There are just over 400 trays undergoing a stratification treatment at Pee Dee REC.

As you can see below, we still have a few gaps to fill before our next round of seed sowing.

We recently received Sorghastrum elliottii that was collected at Francis Marion NF, so that fills a big MAC gap for that species.  Thanks Robin and Vic!  Our most pressing needs are for Lespedeza capitata, Tephrosia virginiana, and Liatris pilosa from the SAC. Please let us know when you see those species beginning to set seed.
