Prairie Dropseed



'Prairie Dropseed' is one of the most handsome and showiest prairie grasses for the garden. It boasts a soft, fountain-like shape of finely textured, emerald green foliage that turns a copper-gold color in fall. Just before, in late summer, fragrant, light brownish-pink panicles form on tall, slender stalks. This native plant is very drought tolerant and is often planted en masse as a ground cover, or used as a specimen.
