Big Blue Stem
Our Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) grows lush in early spring, beneath pines (Pinus taeda), dwarf wax myrtles (Myrica pusilla), and a red maple (Acer rubrum drummondii). The Big Bluestem is a perennial grass that grows in bunches. It provides cover for songbirds and is a larval host for Delaware and Dusted Skipper butterflies. Cows love Big Bluestem, but it is not recommended for concentrated grazing.
