TARA PRAIRIE DROPSEED
Tara is a dwarf cultivar of our native Prairie Dropseed. It’s growth pattern is more upright and vase-shaped than the mounding habit of the species. Medium-green foliage turns golden-orange in the fall. Airy flowerheads are tan, and the seeds are a good winter food source for birds. Tara is a hardy and adaptable grass that can tolerate drought and clay soils once established, but avoid planting in wet sites. It is an attractive grass to use as a low border, grouping, or groundcover.
