Andropogon Big Bluestem 25 Plants $79.99 Description

Andropogon Big Bluestem grows on the roadsides, woodlands, sandy areas, riverbanks, and meadows.

Big Bluestem is commonly known as Andropogon gerardii. It is a type of grass common in the native grasslands of the Prairies and east Mississippi states. It is a species that can tolerate several varieties of soil conditions. Being a perennial bench grass, the base of the stem turns purple or blue as it matures.

Additionally, the heads of the seeds have spike-like projections. The grass's roots are thick, sending out strenuous and vigorous rhizomes forming a heavy sod. This grass grows on the roadsides, woodlands, sandy areas, riverbanks, and meadows. 

Big Blue Stem is important in many sectors. It is useful in conservation. Being a dominant native grass species, it is mixable with other prairie native grasses for the re-vegetation of highways and restoration. Since it does best in moist soils, it can be helpful for logging road restoration and reclamation. 

 

Andropogon Big Bluestem stabilizes the soil hence controlling soil erosion.

 

The planting of this grass stabilizes the soil hence controlling soil erosion. Furthermore, it is planted to protect against wind erosion above the ground. Big Bluestem is also high-quality forage species for all classes of livestock. Since it has high protein content, several people cultivate it as a pasture grass for use in making hay.

Furthermore, Big Bluestem can survive substantial grazing; hence it is highly edible for the livestock during the summer and spring. It is also suitable for landscaping. It is helpful in prairie plantings and wildflower meadows. Moreover, it is an efficient border in the native plant gardens; hence people refer to it as ornamental grass.
