Restoration: Restore a depleted natural area with native grass species for less maintenance.

The plant can grow as tall as eight feet, spreading about three feet per plant. It grows in small clumps that develop solid and deep roots to support the skyscraping height. The grass generally stands upright and true; if you see it beginning to flop, then it might have a bit too much shade. Feathery-textured fork-shaped red or copper flowers appear during the middle to end of summertime and go to seed just before fall.   Rhetorical appeal: Big Bluestem is a visually appealing grass with blue-green foliage that turns coppery red in the fall. It has a clumping growth habit and can reach heights of 5 to 8 feet, adding vertical interest and texture to landscape designs. The plume-like seed heads that emerge in late summer to early fall provide additional visual interest. Low maintenance: Once established, big bluestem is a relatively low-maintenance plant. It is drought-tolerant and can adapt to various soil conditions, including clay and sandy soils. It is also resistant to many pests and diseases, reducing the need for chemical interventions. Erosion control: With its extensive root system, big bluestem helps stabilize soil and control erosion. This grass's deep fibrous roots penetrate the soil, binding it together and reducing the risk of runoff during heavy rainfall. This makes it an excellent choice for slopes, banks, and areas prone to erosion. Habitat and wildlife support: Big Bluestem provides habitat and food sources for various wildlife species. The dense growth of this grass offers shelter for small mammals, birds, and beneficial insects. The seed heads attract birds, such as finches and sparrows, while the foliage covers ground-nesting birds and insects. Carbon sequestration: Like all plants, big bluestem absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and stores carbon in its biomass and roots. As a perennial grass with extensive root systems, it can contribute to carbon sequestration, helping mitigate climate change. Native plant benefits: big bluestem is a native grass, and incorporating native plants in landscaping has several advantages. Native plants are hardy and adapted to local environmental conditions, making them more resilient to pests, diseases, and extreme weather. They also support native pollinators and contribute to the overall biodiversity of the ecosystem. Winter interest: Even after the growing season ends, big bluestem can add interest to the winter landscape. The persistent upright stems and seed heads can provide structure and texture when other plants have gone dormant or lost their foliage. Overall, big bluestem is an attractive, low-maintenance grass that offers multiple benefits in landscaping, including erosion control, wildlife habitat, carbon sequestration, and aesthetic appeal. .
