(Indian Grass)

Bearing feathery quills of golden flowers on tall erect stems, this clump-forming grass is native to prairies and open woodlands over much of North America. Appearing in late summer, the flower heads are held high above fountaining tussocks of knee-high, narrow-bladed leaves that flex gracefully at their tips. The gray-green to metallic-blue leaves assume bright rust colors in fall before fading to parchment tones. The golden-tan flower heads turn burgundy and bronze as they ripen their seed.
