About Sorghastrum: Sorghastrum is a native grass that is useful by itself, as a specimen in the mid to back of border or grouped together to create a living fence or screen. It is very easy to grow and prized for its showy, late summer flowers and striking fall beauty. Seed heads will feed many types of birds into winter.
