Description Fine Print
 
Sorghastrum 'Indian Steel' is a dramatic, quite hardy, stately blue grass. It is clump-forming with an upright, open habit typically growing 3-5' tall, but occasionally taller.  It features slender (1/2" wide), blue-green leaf blades (8-12" long) which turn yellow in fall and retain some gold colour throughout winter.  Narrow, feathery panicles (to 12" long) of tan-yellow flowers appear well above foliage in late summer to early fall.  Panicles turn bronze in fall and continue to provide interest into early winter.
