Bushy Bluestem is a clump-forming native grass that is grown for its attractive foliage and feathery silvery-pink to white club-shaped flower/seed panicles in fall. The flatted leaf blades are typically blue-green and turn coppery-orange with the panicles which soften into billowy plumes after frost.  Fall foliage color persists well into winter providing good ornamental interest.  Grows best in full sun and moist to wet well-drained soils.  It can be an aggressive spreader.
