Three native grasses that are well-suited for gardens in the upper Midwest are Indian Grass (Sorghastrum nutans), Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium
) and Prairie Dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis).

The capacity for tiller recruitment was the most pronounced morphological distinction between perennial bunchgrass (Schizachyrium scoparium
) with contrasting histories of herbivory .

In this greenhouse experiment, we evaluated the growth from seed of four plant species: Indian grass (Sorghastrum nurans), little blue stem (Schizachyrium scoparium
), lupine (Lupinus perennis), and Illinois ticktrefoil (Desmodium illinoense) for their potential use in sand mine revegetation.
The prairies, in contrast to the cedar glades, are dominated by the perennial grasses little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium
