Bison Big Bluestem



Bison Big Bluestem is a warm perennial warm season grass that can be used in many applications ranging from prairie restoration and highway re-vegetation for conservation purposes to being used as forage for livestock and wildlife species. It is often grown as pasture grass and also cut for hay production. Its blue coloration at the base of the culm and purple colored 3 parted flower clusters, having a resemblance to that of turkey foot, make this warm season perennial easily distinguishable from other warm season grasses. The culms stand erect and tall and are usually covered by a blue tinted waxy layer.
