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


    I’m a warm season grass.


    I'm a bunch grass with a soft mounding habit. 


    My seeds attract birds.


    I’m a host plant for the pepper and salt skipper butterfly found in our area.


    I like to grow in clumps.


    I spread slowly from short rhizomes.
