Big bluestem long hairs easy ID

IMG_3059Click on this photo to enlarge it, and notice the long hairs along the leaf edge…. a characteristic of big bluestem. Cool to see these so clearly and no need to see the flower to tell what grass this is, its ‘Lord Snowden’ a new blue cultivar, not the usual color of big bluestem.
