Plant Description

Sideoats Grama forms neat 2 foot tufts of grass that gradually spread by means of underground rhizomes. The mid-summer flowers are truly beautiful-small spots of bright purple and orange, one-sided along stiff stems. Native to central and southern states, Sideoats Grama likes dry sunny places and would look great with Asters, Coneflowers, Baptisias, Achillea, Butterfly Weed, Sunflowers, and Sumac. Clumps turn an attractive beige for the winter.
