OTHER: Blue Grama is a warm season grass native to the plains & prairies of North America. It is the state grass of Colorado & New Mexico. Sadly, it is currently listed as endangered species in Illinois.
This grass is very tolerant of many conditions, & can grow in a range of climates from desert to alpine. It can grow in sandy or heavy clay soil & laughs in the face of drought. Grama Grass can be used to control erosion.
Individual plants have a clumping habit, so can be used as an accent plant in beds, rock gardens, or containers, or as a border plant.
Blue Grama Grass can be used as a ground cover for naturalizing, or for grazing. It is also commonly used as a turfgrass or mowed lawn grass.
Butterflies will visit the summer flowers, & Blue Grama is a host plant for Skipper Butterflies. It has nice fall colors in golden brown with some orange shades, reds, & purples. The flowering seed heads are really very ornamental, & also make a great dried flower for arrangements. Be sure to share though! Birds & small animals also enjoy eating the seeds in fall :)
