Thin Man Indian grass Sorghastrum nutans \\\'Thin Man\\\' PPAF
A selected form of native Indian grass, Thin Man has stunning blue foliage and a narrow, very upright growing habit to the leaves and flower spikes. Blooming in late summer, the golden-bronze-colored flowers are very showy and provide big seeds that feed songbirds and other seed eating animals in fall. Thin Man was selected from a population of Indian grass originally collected near Clovis, NM. Thus, it's more xeric and tolerant of dry Western growing conditions than other varieties that hail from the Midwest and East Coast. Xeriscape.

Tips from the pros: Grow dry once established to enhance the blue color of the foliage.
