Grows abundantly on moist open prairie sites, but is also found in shaded areas. It is one of the few native grasses that does well in shade. This cool season grass begins growth in the fall and grows slowly through the winter, maturing in late spring to early summer. It mixes nicely with all other warm-season native grasses. Its seedlings are vigorous and produce ground cover rapidly. Height with seed head is 2 to 4 feet. It is a larval food source for butterflies, and the grain from seed is an important food for wildlife.
