Looking for a unique species of grass to add to your landscape? Look no further than Andropogon ternarius, also known as split bluestem, splitbeard bluestem, silver bluestem, and paintbrush bluestem. This native grass grows up to 4 ft tall in tufts of branching stems and boasts feathery racemes with pairs of spikelets, each containing one fertile and one sterile spikelet coated in silvery white hairs. Andropogon ternarius thrives in pine and oak forests, prairies, and even disturbed habitats like abandoned fields and grazed pastures. Cattle graze on the grass, and Northern bobwhite are known to nest in bunches of it. Add this unique grass to your landscape for a touch of visual interest and wildlife habitat.
