Andropogon gerardii grass, also known as Turkeyfoot and Big Bluestem, is a warm-season bunchgrass growing to 2.1 meters tall.
The seedheads are divided into narrow branches that resemble a turkey's foot.

It's an excellent plant for controlling erosion and providing cover and wildlife nest sites. During autumn, it turns a stunning reddish-brown colour.

This architectural grass is perfect for erosion control on the back of borders, banks, and slopes and is an excellent choice for drought-prone gardens.

Andropogon gerardii is Illinois and Missouri's state grass and Manitoba's official prairie grass.
This long-lived perennial is a significant part of the tallgrass prairie in central North America.

Andropogon seeds are best sown in autumn or early winter when the soil moisture is adequate or in spring. 

  1. Best sown 3mm directly where they are to grow.
  2. If sowing in trays, transplant when large enough to handle.
  3. If mass planting as a meadow, scatter seeds and rake over.

Germination: 10-21 days at a soil temperature of 15-21°C

*Please note:

  • Please do not discard seeds that do not germinate too hastily; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
