  • I’m a warm season grass. 


    Some people call me turkey foot because of my three finger like blooms


    I’m lovely in a garden that can take my larger height. I’m the host plant for the Argos Skipper.


    My foliage changes colors over the season to add interest to the garden. 

    •Spring: Gray-blue-green

    •Summer: Green with red tinges 

    •Fall: Reddish bronze-with lavender tinges after frost


    I grow through rhizomes to create colonies, but in most soils I establish slowly.
