Indian Grass - Sorghastrum nutans
If you're looking for a vigorous and fast-growing plant that will add beauty, depth, and dimension to your meadow garden and landscape, then Indian grass may be the perfect solution. Indian grass is also a very colorful plant offering a range of colors throughout the year.
Indian Grass is a clump-forming plant has bluish-green foliage in spring and summer seasons that turn yellow to deep gold in fall. Copper colored blooms accentuate the grass's beauty providing added appeal to gardens and landscapes especially when planted in masses. Additionally, the seed head develops as a single, plumlike panicle that adds vertical dimension when planted alongside wildflowers and warm season grasses.
Indian Grass is very drought resistant.
Indian grass thrives best in well-drained floodplain soils but is also highly adaptable to excessively drained soils, soils high in alkalines and acid, and tough soils such as clay and sand. Sorghastrum nutans is adapted to areas of the Northeast west to Texas and areas as far north as North Dakota, but Indian grass can thrive in many regions across the United States. Besides adding curb appeal to your home's landscape, Indian grass offers the additional benefit of being an attraction for many forms of wildlife. Bees and other insects are attracted to the blossoms and songbirds, and small mammals forage for the seeds. Indian grass can also be used as a pasture grass when it is in active growth. While in active growth, the Indian Grass is high in protein and vitamin A.
Indian grass should be planted in areas of full sunlight and should not be planted alongside fragile wildflowers. Indian grass is also an excellent choice for erosion control and for areas of landscaping that require restoration of plants that require little maintenance.
