Bouteloua curtipendula

Side-oats Grama

Side-oats Grama blooms in late summer and early fall, producing interesting side bracts (‘spikelets’) which hang down on one side of the stems. As the seeds mature, they dry to an attractive tan which looks like oats moving in the breeze. Bouteloua curtipendula is a Tall Grass Prairie Plant, growing vigorously in warm weather. It is a larval host for several skipper butterflies and moths, and the mature seedheads feed a multitude of birds and small mammals.
