'Blackhawks' Big Bluestem Grass is a cultivar of a fine native prairie grass that has taken the gardening world by storm. Foliage emerges dark green, shifting to a deep purple that darkens as summer turns to fall, culminating in purple blooms with tiny white seeds. This long-lived grass provides bold contrast in gardens or meadows, offering privacy, year-round visual interest, and habitat for birds and pollinators.(Andropogon)
