Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks'
Regular price $12.00
Once the dominant species of the American tallgrass prairie, Big Bluestem adapts easily to a wide range of soil and moisture conditions. Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks' is an exceptionally colorful selection from Brent Horvath of Illinois. The foliage emerges dark green with blushes of purple in the spring, and the color gradually intensifies through the summer. By fall, the entire clump of foliage is nearly black, including the plumes. Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks' makes a low maintenance, colorful addition to any sunny location. This native selection is great as a specimen, as a screen, and in mass plantings. PP27949
