Big Bluestem is a tall, colorful warm-season native grass that once dominated the Midwest prairies. The upright clumps of flattened foliage emerge grey to blue-green and mature to green with red hues before turning reddish-bronze with lavender tones after frost.  Flowering stalks extend above to foliage in late summer bearing 3-parted, finger-like purplish flower clusters. Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.  Excellent drought tolerant once established.
