Plant Description

Indian Grass is a stiff, upright, clump forming grass which ranges throughout eastern North America in dry places. 'Sioux Blue,' a Longwood Gardens selection, is a 6 foot tall, very erect form with powder blue leaves and copper-brown, fairly compact flower spikes. Use it in dry sunny places in masses or let it naturalize in a prairie setting. The blue of its foliage would be stunning with fall Asters, Sunflowers, and Seashore Mallow.
