Sorghastrum nutans (yellow prairie grass, (formerly Indian grass)


Yellow prairie grass is sometimes called Indian grass, let’s change that. “A striking large grass that forms showy, coppery seed heads in late summer. A grass with high wildlife value for the seeds, cover, and as a host plant for skipper butterflies. Too aggressive for gardens but an excellent addition to meadows. Deer-resistant.” -Wild Seed Project
