Details

Sorghastrum nutans Thin Man PPAF is a selected form of native Indiangrass. 'Thin Man' has very blue foliage and a narrow, very upright growing habit to the leaves and flower spikes. Blooming in late summer, the attractive bronze-colored flowers set lots of big seeds that feed songbirds and other seed eating animals. 'Thin Man' was selected from a population of Indiangrass originally collected near Clovis, NM and is more xeric and tolerant of dry growing conditions than selections from the Mid-West. A Plant Select winner.

        Sadly, this beautiful grass did not make it through its first winter. Planted per included recommendations (mounded site, sand-amended soil with Planters II and Yum-Yum mix), I was sad to see no new growth as all the other grasses awoke. I have not given up on it, though, and will order another later this year when it is back in stock at HCG. Despite this unfortunate outcome, all my other plants from HCG are thriving and are beautiful.

        We bought and planted three of these. We are still waiting to see some life from them this spring. We have been having some unusual higher temps this spring, so I'm hoping to see them spring up out of the ground. I do have 1 that I can see new green growth on, but that is only 1 of the 3.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
