Introducing the superior Sorghastrum nutans var. Holt, also known as the Holt Indiangrass. Remarkable for its prompt maturity and superior leafiness, it yields better than most early maturing strains. This warm-season tall grass from the family of Indiangrass features relatively finer leaves and stems, making it a fantastic forage producer, especially when compared to later maturing varieties from more southerly locales. From 3 to 5 feet tall, it grows in lush, leafy clumps and is typically found east of the Rocky Mountains, highlighting its adaptability. Ideal for an array of uses such as erosion control, landscaping, roadside beautification being an attractive warm season bunchgrass. Serving as a key component of the tall-grass prairie, it also plays a vital role in local ecology by providing food and cover for wildlife including a prime food source for deer. Especially recommended for solid stands or in mixtures for valuable livestock forage and hay and grows best in deep, well drained floodplain soils. Choose Sorghastrum nutans var. Holt Indiangrass for a greener, leafier, and more beneficial option.
