(DROP SEED, RUSH GRASS)
About 100 species of drought-tolerant grasses native to North and South America.
This is a beautiful ornamental grass from valleys and meadows of the western U.S.A., especially on alkaline soils. It forms loose, flowing mounds of narrow bluish-green leaves, turning yellow in autumn then light tan for winter. Although it is a warm season grass, it bears in summer long, graceful, airy, widely-spread flower panicles that open with a strong pink cast before drying to silver. In the wild it often grows in moist, alkaline soils (hence the common name), but is also extremely drought and heat tolerant. Seed wild collected in Utah.
Easy, warm germinator.
