Growing & Maintenance Tips for Andropogon gerardii 'Holy Smoke'

Andropogon gerardii is very tolerant of diverse conditions, but is most often found in full sun, dry and sandy to clay soils. It grows quickly in moist, fertile soils, but is more likely to bend and fall over. Clumps can be divided in early summer, but bring a sturdy shovel! Cut back grass in late winter or early spring.
