The most prevalent of all the prairie grasses, Big Bluestem once covered thousands of miles from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains. Thriving on a tremendous range of soils, in late summer Andropogon gerardii produces distinctive three-parted seed heads which resemble a turkey’s foot. The lush green of the leaves and stems changes with the first frost to an attractive reddish-copper colour that provides landscape interest well into winter.

All Wildflower Farm seeds are hardy through growing zone 3, organic and non-GMO.

Seeding Rate: 12 Lb.s per acre (5.5 KG per hectare) or 125 Grams per 1,000 sq. ft.
