Big Bluestem, a native grass of the Midwestern prairie, has been rediscovered as a useful and beautiful landscape plant. Drought tolerant and easy to maintain, it is a natural choice for prairie, meadow and naturalistic plantings. But, Andropogon gerardii is also great as a background or accent in mixed plantings. Big Bluestem is especially interesting when in bloom - its curiously shaped seed heads resemble upside-down turkey feet. Its foliage draws attention as it changes from green to blue-green and silvery blue in the summer, to red, orange and purple in the fall. Big Bluestem provides shelter and food for songbirds. It grows well in dry-moist, sandy, clay or shallow soils with low fertility. Big Bluestem prefers full sun.
