Andropogon glomeratus- Bushy Beard
Andropogon glomeratus- Bushy Beard, colloquially called “Bushy Beardgrass,” is a wildland grass native to the Americas. It thrives in low-lying, moist areas with full sun exposure, such as grasslands. The USDA Hardiness Zones for bushy beardgrass is 5 to 10. It is found in the eastern and southern states, and as far west as California. This perennial marsh plant tolerates heat well. It has a moderate growing speed, with its dynamic growth happening in the summer. Finch, junco, and tree sparrow eat the seeds, and white-tailed deer and rabbits browse the plant. This grass grows in bunches and is a low maintenance plant.
Bushy beardgrass can grow in soil ranging from fine to coarse
In addition to moisture, it requires between 5.0 and 6.3 pH. It has a high anaerobic tolerance but does not tolerate salinity or calcium carbonate well. Bushy beardgrass can reach about 6 feet at its fully matured height. Leaves of this grass are dull linear blades that run parallel to the stem. The leaves are greenish-blue, turning coppery in the fall and dropping off in winter. Bushy beardgrass is distinct from other warm season grasses with its thick, massive, reddish brown, flowering clumps and its flattened blue-green foliage.
Andropogon glomeratus- Bushy Beard The grass stems stand erect and compressed
They have overlapping sheaths along the bottom portion of the stem. The stems are flat tufts that form in clumps, encased in a creamy bloom. The sheaths are occasionally covered with long shaggy hairs. The flowering has a dense and feathery appearance. Full beardgrass blooms in late summer when it produces its distinct white flowers. These flowers attach directly to the stem, congregating towards the top of the stem, equidistant from each other. The spikelet blooms are downy with fine, silky hairs. The bushy beardgrass drops its seeds in the late fall, as is characteristic of grasses. Andropogon Glomeratus- Bushy Beard.
