Big Bluestem is called the king of the native grasses and it will grow 3 to 9 feet tall and has roots 12 to 13 feet deep. This gives it a lot of drought tolerance.

Big Bluestem is adapted to a wide range of soils but does best on fertile well drained soils. Big Bluestem is used for prairie restoration, grazing and haymaking. Livestock prefer it to other grasses.

Establishment

Plant 1/4″ deep.

Management

Native grasses are slow establishing and weed control is vital during stand development. When grazing or cutting, do not graze Indiangrass under 8 inch heighth and do not cut/graze until it is at least 16 inches tall. Do not graze it below 8 inches. A rest before frost is a good idea to give the plant time to store carbohydrates in the stems and crowns. If cutting for hay cut the 1st crop early while it is still leafy and before it heads out.

Guarantee

OUR PROMISE

A money-back guarantee, also known as a satisfaction guarantee, is essentially a simple guarantee that, if a buyer is not satisfied with a product or service, a refund will be made.
The 18th century entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood pioneered many of the marketing strategies used today, including the satisfaction-or-money-back guarantee on the entire range of his pottery products. He took advantage of his guarantee offer to send his products to rich clientele across Europe unsolicited. The money-back guarantee was also a major tool of early U.S. mail order sales pioneers in the United States such as Richard Sears and Powel Crosley Jr. to win the confidence of consumers.
