Appealing in most seasons, Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks' (Big Bluestem) is a warm season perennial grass forming an upright clump of stems with flattened leaves which emerge deep green to dark purple in spring and deepen to near black. Flowering stems rise in late summer above the foliage bearing purplish 3-parted, finger-like flower clusters, resembling turkey feet. Perfect for providing height and color to the garden, Big Bluestem is drought tolerant, requires very little care, is virtually disease and pest free and provides months of interest. This long-lived architectural grass has a variety of uses, including screening, naturalizing, restoring prairies, and nesting materials for birds and mammals.
