One of the most characteristic grasses of Tallgrass Prairies and common in old fields in theCatskills. Clump-forming and fine-textured with delicate inflorescences that become silvery and noticeably attractive when side-lit or back-lit by the Autumn or early Winter sun.  You can help seed-eating birds that overwinter in our area by waiting to trim grasses back to the ground until early to mid spring.
