A superb grass for beds, borders, and cottage gardens. It makes a great focal point with its deep green to dark purple foliage in the spring. It really begins to show off earlier than other ornamental grasses, and the foliage color deepens to almost black as the season progresses. Big bluestem is an important member of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem of North America. This cultivar is a seedling of Andropogon gerardii 'Red October'.

Homeowner Growing Tips

Grow in full sun in average soil to poor soils. Overly moist or fertile soils can lead to a floppy habit. Tolerant of dry conditions, once established. Cut to the ground in late winter. May re-seed occasionally under ideal conditions.
