Drought tolerant grass which prefers well drained soil in full sun. Great choice for erosion control or soil stabilization as it is a clump forming grass and tolerates a wide range of well drained soils. Purple spikelets (flowers) form on one side of the stem in summer attracting birds. Spikelets turn tan-colored and resemble oats in fall, and the foliage turns purple and red.

Plant with spring flowers as this grass is a warm season grass, staying short in the Spring. Pairs well with Prairie Smoke, Purple Echinacea, Butterfly Milkweed, or Little Bluestem.
