It is good to hear that you have such a strong population--I'm happy to hear it is a native that is repopulating vacant lots. Before so many things got out of whack, native plants would be what would naturally re-establish bare soil. I'd love to get back to that...or, more realistically, at least get to the point where the natives get a fighting chance.

Nice to know you have a local ecotype.

I can't wait to have our field graced by the beauty of little bluestem--and the wildlife it attracts.
