Product Description

Andropogon g. 'Indian Warrior' PPAF
Common Name: Grass-Ornamental, Big blue stem, Turkey Foot
Zone 3 to 9, Full sun
Plants reach 5 to 6 feet tall and 2 feet wide.

'Indian Warrior' forms a tall, upright clump of green foliage that begins to take on dusky purple tones as early as midsummer. In late summer, glossy deep purple, three-branched inflorescences that vaguely resemble a turkey's foot (hence the common name) are produced on reddish stems. When they first open, tiny bright red-orange pollen sacs dangle from the flowers and are quite visible even from a distance. In cooler weather, the foliage changes from green to a deep smoky purple with red highlights.

Grows best in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils. Tolerant of a wide range of soils and growing conditions, 'Indian Warrior' grows well in moist, fertile soils, but is less apt to topple in dryish, infertile soils. This develops an extensive root system and is somewhat slow to establish, but, once established, has excellent drought tolerance and is easy to maintain. Cut stems to the ground in late winter before new shoots appear. It is very low maintenance and long lived once established.

Attributes: Border plants, Cut flower or foliage, Dried flower or seed heads, Mass Planting, Specimen or focal point plant, Deer resistant. Perfect to use as a screen in the garden.

Not available for shipment to CA

Twenty (20) plants per flat (or tray). Approximate Plug Measurements: 4.25 inches deep x 2.75 inches wide.
