Common name: Prairie Dropseed
This native American prairie plant forms a beautiful, upright, arching clump.
Slow-growing, but worth the wait.
The emerald green foliage is fine-textured.
The flowers appear in August; the 6-8" panicles rise 2-3' above the foliage and have a sweet fragrance.
In autumn, the plant turns a golden yellow, sometimes with orange hues, and then the entire plant turns a light brown for the winter months.
Extremely heat and drought tolerant. Clump forming.
Height: 24-36" (With plumes)
Exposure: Full sun
