The Monarch of the Prairie!
The most widely distributed of all the prairie grasses, it was largely responsible for the formation of the famous prairie sod. The distinctive three-parted seedheads resemble a turkeyfoot. Lush green leaves and stems change with the first frost to an attractive red-bronze color that provides lanscape interest well into the winter. Grows in almost any soil, from wet clay to dry sand. Hardy to Zones 3 - 9.
