Most turf-type grasses are Europe-Asia origin. It is a trend to replace alien lawns with native lawns in the face of the changing climate. While it is a mass undertaking to do so, it gets easier by starting small with this switchgrass, which is one of the most popular prairie tall grasses. Space is needed to grow tall grass. Otherwise, certain pruning is required.

Pair well with goldenrod in height and texture, making a beautiful fall display together as the last product image shows.
