Sorghastrum nutans


Sorghastrum nutans, Indiangrass, is widely used in large scale roadside plantings, revegetation projects, prairie restorations, and many different types of erosion control projects because it grows well on disturbed sites and produces abundant seeds.  Sorghastrum nutans is a taller bunchgrass that typically grows in clumps about 1' in diameter, the numerous short rhizomes can mat together to form a dense sod with roots extending 6' into the earth making it a great tool for erosion control. It works as a suitable replacement for ornamental grasses when designing native landscapes.  Very drought tolerant.
