A selected form of native golden prairie grass (formerly 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 golden prairie grass originally collected near Clovis, New Mexico. Thus, it's more xeric and tolerant of dry, western growing conditions than other varieties that hail from the Midwest and East Coast. Xeriscape.
