Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks'

Big Bluestem

From its beginnings in the American tallgrass prairie to the new American landscape, this exciting new cultivar offers contrasting burgundy-black foliage in mid-summer and stunning maroon inflorescences in August and September. 24-30" tall foliage and burgundy flower stems reach and overall height of 5-7'. Early season foliage is green and transforms its color as summer progresses. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions but is less likely to flop in well-drained, dryish soil.PP#27949
