Giant Sacaton is a big warm season grass that is readily adaptable to a variety of soil types. Sporobolus wrightii produces narrow green blades that make a 4’ clump, out of which come 5’ silvery inflorescences in late summer. The seedheads make a striking addition to fresh or dried flower arrangements. Giant Sacaton originated in the Southwest, where it is an important food source for livestock (grazing) and wildlife (seeds). This is an excellent native replacement for Miscanthus.
