Using ecology to restore land and water
Indian grass is a tall, attractive grass that is a dominant species in Minnesota prairies. This warm season grass provides texture and color to landscapes with its golden stems and showy, cream to golden-brown seed heads in the fall. Flowers develop as narrow plumes at the top of the plant with showy, long, yellow stamens. It is grows in a wide range of soil textures and is found in habitats such as prairies, open woods, and savannas. Indian grass provides nesting habitat and cover for many bird species.
