Bouteloua curtipendula

Sideoats Grama

This clump grass is native to the prairies of North America at elevations from 2500-7000 feet. Narrow blue-green leaves turn tan in the winter months. In the late spring and summer unusual pink-purple flower spikes are produced, followed by large seeds that develop on one side of the stiff stalk. This small grass is long-lived, tough, and tolerant of heat and drought.
