You bet your a…, it’s a great grass.

Below is our SC collection of Andropogon glaucopsis, looking outstanding in the garden this week. This native gem can be found growing in swamps, scattered from SC through much of the gulf coast. We’re testing its adaptability to non-bog settings, and so far, it’s doing amazingly well. For years, this was considered a subspecies of Andropogon glomeratus, which it obviously isn’t. Hardiness Zone 7b-10, at least.

Andropogon glaucopsis, normally found in swamps, being trialed in normal garden conditions at JLBG.
