Indian Steel Indian Grass is an open warm-season native grass with upright slender blue-green leaves which turns yellow in fall and maintains some gold color in winter. Panicles of tan-yellow flowers rise high above the foliage on stems in late summer to fall and mature to bronze which persists through winter.  Grows best in full sun and dry to medium well-drained soils. Drought tolerant once established.
