Sorghastrum nutans 'Sioux Blue' (Sioux Blue Indiangrass)

Height: 4-5 feet
Spread: 2-3 feet
Light: Full to part sun.
Soil: Average, well-drained soil. Drought tolerant once established.
Description: Herbaceous, midwestern native perennial grass with a narrow, upright habit of metallic blue blades. Tan flowers crown the plant in late summer and then give way to grey seedheads that persist through winter. Flowers and seedheads work well in holiday wreaths and cut arrangements. Great for naturalizing and erosion control. Pairs well with Solidago, Eupatorium, Aster and Echinacea. Cut back in early spring as new growth emerges.
