INDIAN GRASS is a native of the Tallgrass prairie. The tough, long stalks where used for weaving. Noted for it's ability to comeback and thrive after a fire. Drought tolerant and prefers poor soils.

Forms large clumps about 2' wide and can get 6' tall. Indian grass turns a rich copper color in fall and stands out against winters grey's and browns.
