Bushy Bluestem (Andropogon glomeratus)

Bushy Bluestem (Andropogon glomeratus)

This hardy bunchgrass is commonly found from the Central Plains of the U.S. south into Mexico. To the east of us, it is replaced by the almost-identical and closely related broom sedge (Andropogon virginicus). Usually found in damp or wet depressions, the plant forms colonies and seeds out rapidly. It can become weedy. The grass is best used in meadow plantings. In the Fall, it has showy seed heads that consist of a large, cottony tuft usually held 1-2' above the foilage.

Bushy Bluestem is insect free as well as deer resistant.
