Introducing Andropogon gerardii 'Niagara' – a stunning variety of the Big Bluestem grass. With a tolerance for a wide range of soils and moisture, this perennial grass is a perfect addition to any landscape. It grows up to a height of 3 – 10 ft and forms large clumps, spreading by short stolons. The stem base turns to a beautiful blue-purple as it matures and the seed heads have three spike-like projections, earning it the nickname "turkey foot." This grass is also known as Tallgrass or Prairie Tallgrass and is a warm-season bunch grass that grows well in hot, droughty sites. Its deep roots and tough rhizomes create strong sod that is excellent for erosion control. Additionally, it provides cover for wildlife, making it an ideal choice for natural areas. Seed germination for the Big Bluestem grass occurs during a 2-week period of moistened seed at a time when soil temperatures reach 60 degrees Fahrenheit. This grass is a stunning addition to any garden or landscape and is an excellent option for areas where cool season grasses cannot tolerate high temperatures and coarse soils. Get your Andropogon gerardii 'Niagara' today and experience the beauty and benefits of this native grass!
