Tara Dwarf Prairie Dropseed Grass



'Tara' is a variety of Dwarf Prairie Dropseed that is shorter and more upright than the species. Its smaller stature makes it a great choice for foreground plantings, rock gardens, and borders. Fine-textured, lush green foliage changes to a gorgeous rust-red-orange in fall. Airy, fragrant, light pink panicles form evenly above the tight, vase shape in late summer. Seeds provide food and attract birds to the yard.
