In late summer, warm season short grass little blue-stem (_Schizochyrium scoparium_) has a darker color before blooming  (at left).  Prairie dropseed  (_Sporobolus heterolepis_) (center) has already bloomed and is setting seed. The yellow flowers are old field goldenrod (_Solidago nemoralis_) (in background) and Riddellâs goldenrod (_Solidago riddelli_) (in foreground).  The grass species are included in the FOA Arboretum Prairie Garden mix.
