Big bluestem is a long-lived grass that forms a tall, strictly upright clump of deep green foliage. Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks' will develop deep purple leaf tips by mid to late summer at the time when upright, burgundy red inflorescences emerge. As the season progresses the entire plant will turn to purple black for a stunning late season display.
