    Product Description

    When they think about grass for landscaping, most people's first thought is lush green lawns. However, there's so much style waiting in the world of ornamental grasses. Blackhawks Big Bluestem is the perfect example. The color transition is really beautiful on this variety—it'll start out dark green and turn so dark purple that it's nearly black in fall. This cultivar does what dark colors do best in landscaping, adding depth and drama to your display. This is useful in a mixed border, along with color it brings wispy texture and lots of vertical interest. If you've got erosion issues or sandier soil, naturalize Blackhawks through the area to help control it—it looks great in big massed groups. Andropogon gerardii 'Blackhawks'
