Bouteloua curtipendula

Sideoats Grama

In late summer, from bluish-gray 1.5’ tall leaves emerge purplish flowering stems with distinct oat-like spikelets hanging from one side. Fall foliage colors vary from bronze-purple to red while flowering stems fade to tan.  The overall height is 3’. Native throughout the United States, this clump-former grows well in a wide range of soils and is a nice accompaniment to native wild flowers. It spreads slowly by rhizomes and can be used for erosion control. Plant 24” apart.
