“Prairies are classified as wet, mesic or dry. Wet prairies hold a lot of water in the soil. Plants like cordgrass, mountain mint and New England aster grow here. Mesic prairies are moist through much of the growing season. Big bluestem, black-eyed Susan, compass plant and rattlesnake master are some of the plants of mesic prairies. Dry prairies include the hill prairies and sand prairies where the soil drains rapidly. Little bluestem, leadplant, purple prairie clover and rough blazing star can be found in dry prairies.”
