Big Bluestem


Out of stock


Big bluestem is a tall, warm-season perennial native grass with stiff, erect culms; flattened and keeled sheaths; membranous ligules; and flat or folded leaf blades. Big bluestem has developed a very efficient spreading root system which may reach depths of 5-8 feet (150-200 cm) or more in the northern latitudes, and 6-8 feet (180-240 cm) in the southern part of its natural range. Although short rhizomes may be present, it usually makes a bunch type growth. Big bluestem grows well on deep to shallow, sandy to fine-textured and rocky soils.
