In a Nutshell:
* Indiangrass ( Sorghastrum nutans ), also called Indian grass, is a North American prairie grass, and is the official state grass of both Oklahoma and South Carolina . Indiangrass is a perennial bunchgrass , prominent in tallgrass prairie , along with big bluestem ( Andropogon gerardii ), little bluestem ( Schizachyrium scoparium ), and switchgrass ( Panicum virgatum ). more...
* Indian grass is a warm season Missouri native perennial grass which typically occurs in prairies, glades and open woods throughout the State. It was one of the dominant grasses of the tallgrass prairie which once covered large parts of the Midwest. Typically grows 3-5' tall (less frequently to 6') and is noted for its upright form and blue-green foliage. It forms upright clumps (to 2-3' tall) of slender, blue-green leaves (to 1/2" wide and 2' long). Foliage turns orange-yellow in fall and usually retains hints of color into the winter. Stiff, vertical flowering stems, topped with narrow, feathery, light brown flower panicles (to 12" long) highlighted with yellow stamens, rise well above the foliage clump in late summer to 5-6' tall. Panicles darken to bronze/chestnut brown in fall as they mature, later fading to gray. Panicles continue to provide some interest well into winter. more...
