Indiangrass - Perennial
Indiangrass is a very decorative, native warm season bunch grass that grows to 6’ tall with 24” minimum root depth. A warm season grass species in the North American tall grass prairie ecosystem, its unique yellowish brown, plume-like panicle makes it easy to distinguish in mixed plantings that create cover for wildlife. Indiangrass doesn't have the remarkable yields demonstrated by some of the other native warm season grasses. Indiangrass is tolerant of an extremely wide range of soil and pH conditions. Prefers full sun and has moderate drought tolerance, grows best in deep well-drained soils and will bloom from August to October, identified by its reddish yellow color in winter.
