Detailed Description for Andropogon

The tallest American member of the Andropogon genus, big blue stem, forms sturdy upright clumps of narrow blades standing 6' tall. Andropogon gerardii prefers slightly moist soils but is surprisingly drought tolerant once established. The lush blue-green summer foliage takes on a copper accent in fall which persists through the Winter.
