Wiregrass In North Carolina

I’ve often wondered why the “Wiregrass Region” runs through Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, totally neglecting the Carolinas. Wiregrass is prolific here in North Carolina, where it’s a vital understory plant in our longleaf pine savannas. We have seven of these savannas (if you count the newest addition to our state park system, Carvers Creek State Park). More than any other state. Shouldn’t that mean North Carolina isn’t just in the region, but is at the very heart of it?

P.S. Guess what blog got named one of the Top 80 North Carolina Blogs?? That’s right! Where the Dogwood Blooms came in at #34!
