Attractive native grass cultivar: steel-blue foliage with hints of light green, 5’ flower spikes topped with yellow flowers, and beautiful bronze fall color. With these attributes, Blue Indian Grass is one of the most attractive native grass cultivars. In addition, it is drought tolerant, tolerates poor soils, and requires little maintenance. This is a great choice for sustainable landscapes, natural areas, and modern designs that demand structured, yet restful, form and texture. Sorghastrum nutans ‘Indian Steel’ performs best in full sun. Rich soil and too much fertilizer will cause weak growth and flopping. Indian grasses attract songbirds and provide shelter for gamefowl. Blue Indian Grass is a seed selection of native Sorghastrum nutans.
