Sand lovegrass is a tall bunching grass with a pleasing weeping foliage habit, and tall stems of seedheads that often flop in late summer. A perennial native to a large portion of the central United States, it is usually found in sandy, open woodlands or meadows. The green leaves are graceful and slightly arching to upright, and in late spring, tall stems arise and are topped with panicles, or branched clusters of tiny yellow flowers that turn purplish, eventually red-purple when seeds are ripe. By late summer, the foliage and seedheads often flop, creating an architecturally interesting clump. Autumn often finds the leaves changing into shades of tan and rust.
It is lovely as a tall accent in a meadow, or mixed border among taller-growing sunflowers and asters. The leaves have a sweet taste and is a favorite of cattle and horses, and is sometimes called ice cream grass. (info source:
