Sorghastrum nutans / Indian Grass


In late summer and into autumn, Indian grass lights up meadows with its tiny yellow anthers, then coppery seeds. This classic warm-season grass forms clumps of greyish and bronzed foliage. Adds a touch of prairie to any planting, and is important physical support for our showy late-season wildflowers. Seed for birds.
