Bushy Bluestem Grass is considered an ornamental grass that attracts birds and butterflies while providing nesting material for bees. Thriving in many conditions, it is resistant to a myriad of temperature changes. Thankfully, it is very resistant to deer and should help produce a solid and appealing lawn for those who want a high-water grass that thrives in the autumn months.

Bushy Bluestem Grass Appearance

Expect the flowers of this grass to create a silver color that is quite attractive when in full bloom. In particular, this grass looks best in full sunlight, as it makes a reflection off the surface that will catch the eye and intrigue both homeowners and people who drive past their yard.

You can expect various colors throughout the season, including a blue-green texture in the warmest months and a lighter color in the winter. When properly maintained, this grass grows spread far across your lawn and rarely bunches up the way similar species may.

Bushy Bluestem Grass Growth Traits

This perennial grass has a fibrous root system, meaning that it can spread quite quickly over a large stretch of land. Expect it to grow as high as 3-6 feet without proper maintenance and trimming. Anticipate leaves of alternate arrangement with straight appearances.

Typically, this grass thrives best in the autumn and produces a green or blue-green leaf that turns a copper color in the winter. Regular mowing and a little fertilizer before the growing season should help to transform this grass into a more potent variety.

Bushy Bluestem Grass Bloom Details

When in full bloom, you can expect this grass to produce white and grown textures. Blooming typically begins in early August and stretches out to the warmest times of November. Though it naturally thrives best in hot-weather areas, it will go dormant during the winter to prevent grass death.

As a result, this species is found as far south as Florida, Texas, and Central America and as far north as Alaska. Expect it to grow the best in moist areas in a grassland environment, as it typically needs these unique environmental conditions to thrive to the fullest range of its possible strengths.

Bushy Bluestem Grass Planting Information

When planting this growth, soil needs can vary from clay, loam, and sand. Typically, it does best with slightly disturbed or aerated soil with a sterile atmosphere. It can tolerate both salinity and poor drainage and, in some cases, may thrive best when drainage is not at its finest. That's because this grass needs a high concentration of water to grow to its fullest potential.

This grass is very tolerant of heat and even does well in colder temperatures meaning it can be found as far north as Alaska. It will require full sun and a high content of moisture. As a result, regular watering may be essential, particularly in areas like Arizona with minimal rainfall. Without this type of rain, this species is likely to die off fairly quickly and leave large lawn patches.
