Sideoats Grama Grass

Sideoats Grama Grass (Bouteloua curtipendula) is a superb native grama grass that thrives in hot, dry gardens, where its showy summer flower spikes add grace and texture. Our strain has blue foliage that contrasts nicely with the mid-summer tan flowers, which mature to off-white seed heads in early fall. It's a very attractive winter grass with finely tapered, light-catching flower stems.

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).

Details
24-28” tall x 15” wide. A superb native grass, Sideoats Grama Grass (Bouteloua curtipendula) is a delight in the xeric garden. This grass will provide year-round visual interest in waterwise gardens, and is not appetizing to deer. It grows best with full sun and thrives in any soil type including clay. Established plants are quite xeric and a fine choice for very dry sites. Mature plants have an attractive vase-shaped growth habit that mixes in nicely with other native late season bloomers like Rudbeckia, Ratibida, and Salvia azurea.
