"Our Indigenous herbalists say to pay attention when plants come

to you; they're bringing something you need to learn."

-Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass


Sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata) came into my life as a gift. When you come to know this beautiful grass, it surely will gift you as well.

Sweetgrass is native to northern Eurasia and North America and found growing in diverse habitats even above the Arctic Circle. 


Ozark Native Ecotype Indigenous Plant Nursery reverently and sustainably propagates the fast-growing SupershamanisticTM, a naturally occurring polyploid strain, which grows faster and can be harvested 3-5 times a year. Plugs are sold and shipped anywhere in the United States and U.S. Territories. 


With great respect to the Indigenous Peoples, Cultures, and many Tribes, the grass is considered sacred by many and is referred to as the Hair of Mother Earth.


Sweetgrass is more than an ordinary-looking grass with a nice aroma. It is considered one of the "four sacred medicines" and is regarded as a sacred purification plant also known by the names holy grass, vanilla grass, and bison grass. It is used to smudge a space and burned during prayer and meditation.


Sweetgrass, so special, not only has medicinal and spiritual qualities, but it also is used:

         ~ in crafts and basketry 

         ~ in making braids for smudging

         ~ in stuffing mattresses and pillows and placing in a closet to repel moths and keep clothes smelling fresh


The two chemicals found in the holy grass is phytol and coumarin, both repel mosquitoes.

SupershamanisticTM Sweetgrass


The SupershamanisticTM strain is fast growing and grown in full sun and must be kept constantly moist. It takes 2-3 years to develop a robust root system. It grows to near 40 inches with the potential to grow 48 inches long.
