Indiangrass 

Native - Perrenial - Warm Season 

Indiangrass grows 3 to 8 feet tall and reproduces both from seed and rhizomes. Plants are bluish-green during growing season and turn golden tan later in the season. Indiangrass is one of the "big four" desirable​ tall grasses with switchgrass, little bluestem, and big bluestem.Indiangrass has excelent grazing value and is desirable for all types of livestock. The grass provides good nesting cover for quail and turkey and provides fawn cover. While Indiangrass is often cut for high quaility native hay, recreational mowing is not recomended for tall native grasses. Heavy grazing will decrease Indiangrass without proper stocking and rotational grazing. The grass responds well to prescribed burning during late winter.
