This deciduous warm season bunchgrass is a delight in fall gardens. In the late summer, seed stalks appear, providing beautiful visual interest when backlit by the sun and gently blowing in the wind. This grass occurs naturally in floodplains and does well if deeply watered twice a month in summer. Water monthly the rest of the year. Giant Sacaton looks lovely when mass planted but can also stand alone when planted among late blooming summer perennials. In late February, trim this grass to about a foot from the ground so it will be ready for spring.
