Andropogon virginicus (Broomsedge) [30 Seeds]


Germination Information: I suggest starting these seeds in a pot, gently pressed into the surface of the growing medium, in a warm, bright place.

If no seedlings appear after several weeks, consider giving the seeds an artificial chilling period (put the pot in a plastic bag and refrigerate it for 6 to 8 weeks) before removing the bag and moving the pot back to a warm, bright place.

Transplant the seedlings (in groups) to individual pots when they’re 1 to 2 inches tall. Use groups of 6 to 10 or so if you want bigger clumps faster, or 3 or 4 per pot if you want a larger number of starter plants.

Broomsedge (Andropogon virginicus), also known as broomsedge bluestem, is a warm-season meadow grass that grows in narrow, upright clumps 3 to 5 feet tall, with tufts of silvery seeds and coppery orange foliage color in fall. The species is a U.S. native. I collected these seeds from wild plants in my meadow in Bucks County, PA. Full sun. Perennial; Zones 3 to 8.

Collected in October 2020. At least 30 seeds.
