(Indian Grass, Indian Steel 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.

(Softleaf Buffalo Grass, St. Augustine Grass)

Saint Augustine grass is an evergreen herbaceous perennial native to tropical America, but naturalized throughout the tropics and sub-tropics. Flattened, above-ground, running stems or stolons root at their nodes to form dense mats of relatively broad grassy leaves. The yellow-green to blue-green leaves are folded upon emergence. Flowers are typical of grasses, held on short spikes among the leaves in summer and fall. However, most cultivars used for lawns do not produce fertile flowers or viable...
