Tallgrass for Naturalizing Tallgrass prairie used to cover vast swaths of the Midwest, where the sky was big and the buffalo roamed. Those prairies don’t exist like they used to, but when they did Big Bluestem Grass (Andropogon gerardii) was the king. It was the dominant grass that grew there, providing breathtaking seasonal color change and food and protection for wildlife.Thankfully you don’t need a vast prairie to enjoy the gifts of Big Bluestem – a neglected little corner of your yard will do. Big Bluestem thrives in dry, infertile soil where most other plants would shrivel. (A true hardy native, it does just fine in ordinary garden soil and even wet soil, too!) We’ll bet, though, that you’ll want to plant it in more prominent places than that corner. Big Bluestem makes a striking background for a naturalized border. (It grows from 4’ to 6’ tall in a season.) It is the backbone of a wildflower garden. It easily fits into a contemporary garden scheme, too. We know that you will love this tall stiff grass so much you will be looking for all the creative ways you can use it in your garden.This grass thrives on neglect. Once it is established the only real care it needs is to be cut to the ground prior to the first shoots of spring.

This kaleidoscope will light up your garden all year. Order yours today!.* Hardy native grass * Quick growing (up to 6’ per year!) * Four seasons of interest.
