  • I'm native to NY state and Tompkins County.


    I’m a warm season grass. 


    I'm a popular grass for native plant gardens, loved for my tolerance for dry soils and my adaptabliltiy to many different soil types although I don't do well with heavy clay soils. 

     I have  a lovely bronze-orange fall color. 

    I'm a host plants for many of the skipper butterflies. 

    Many insects like to feed on my leaves 

    Birds enjoy my seeds
