Dwarf Prairie Dropseed
AVAILABLE SPRING 2019
More compact, slightly stiffer and definitely smaller than the species, this upright fine textured dwarf cultivar was selected by astute nurseryman Roy Diblik. ‘Tara’ is a staunch, warm season grass, which forges a tasteful vase-shaped green foundation beneath the exquisite wispy gathering of numerous minute pinkish purple inflorescences on slender stems. Mature round seed heads drop to the ground, hence the common name, while narrow foliage blazes red and orange for autumn. Enticing birds and gardeners, especially those who have limited space, heat tolerant Dwarf Prairie Dropseed can mingle with Echinacea, Monarda or Nepeta in borders, slopes and meadow plantings.
Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 3.
