Warm-season grass which actively grows in the summer. Tall growing (up to 7 feet) and great for erosion control, with deep roots. Prefers moist sandy loam soil but can grow in a variety of soil conditions. Because of the height and width, songbirds find shelter and food within this grass. Its seed pods turn a vibrant burgundy colour in the fall. Perfect for your tall grass prairie garden. Provide ample space for growth.
