About Indian Grass

Indian Grass

Indian Grass is a common feature along the United States plains and is frequently used today as a hardy, perennial decorative Grass. When allowed to grow wild, Indian Grass can quickly cover a large prairie. Indian Grass can be planted either as sod (to cover ground) or in clumps (to form decorative borders, screens, or hedgerows).

Creating a Native Garden with Indian Grass

Indian Grass is frequently used throughout the United States as a native, non-invasive species. Indian Grass is straightforward to care for; it can grow in almost any soil. It is found natively throughout much of the Midwest, growing wild. These grasses can grow up to six feet high and, as a perennial, will return season after season. Because they are a type of Grass, they can also start to spread.

Indian Grass is frequently used to offset other, more vibrant garden additions. It can be used as a "filler plant," It is low maintenance enough to be planted throughout a garden. It will re-seed and is liked by many grazing animals, which may be a consideration for those who have deer or rabbits in their area.

Taking Care of Indian Grass

When Indian Grass is established in native areas, it requires very minimal care. One should water it as it establishes itself, but once it is established, it should only require as much watering as a regular lawn. You can plant it against other plants to improve the soil's aeration and the water's run. It does best in well-drained areas but can grow in floodplain prairies and low-elevation areas.

If your Indian Grass is over-watered, it may start to brown. It should still be in well-drained soil -- and it should be in full sun or partial sun. Otherwise, you may need to trim your Indian Grass back periodically.

How to Plant Indian Grass

Indian Grass can be planted as seed if it's going to be grown into sod. It can also be planted as an already established clump if it's going to be used decoratively. It will continue to grow upward as long as it is allowed to, which means you should consider how tall you want it to grow. It will grow as tall as a person, but it can be continually trimmed down if desired. Once planted, one should thoroughly water it until it has been established. Every spring, the Grass will start to grow again.

Indian Grass is frequently used in natural, native gardens to add decoration without increasing maintenance time. Though it only requires a little work, it should still be checked and trimmed back to avoid taking over its territory. Pair Indian Grass with other native plants and flowering plants to create a well-balanced and non-invasive garden.
