Indian Grass 'Indian Steel'

This colorful selection of grass forms a non-invasive clump of steely blue-green leaves, with long and narrow tan-colored spikes appearing in late summer and lasting into the winter. Very drought tolerant once established, and tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions. Cut the dead foliage back to the ground in late winter or early spring. Clumps may be easily divided in spring.
