The Cheyenne indiangrass (Soghastrum nutans ‘Cheyenne’) finally has its flower heads up and out full. The bronze heads are so elegant atop the blue foliage of this native grass. Butterfly larvae use the foliage for food, and wild turkey and quail eat the seeds and use the grass for cover. I haven’t had any turkeys visiting the habitat here in town, but there is always a first time!
