Indiangrass is a warm season grass that spreads by seed and short rhizomes. It grows to a height of 3 to 6 feet and will grow on sandy soil, however it is better adapted to moist, well drained bottom lands. Indiangrass exhibits moderate salt tolerance and will withstand occasional flooding. It makes good quality hay if cut before flower stalks develop. Improved varieties of Indiangrass are Holt and Tomahawk.
