Sorghastrum nutans. There are few grasses that can hold up to the drought-deluge cycle of a plains summer, but Indian grass is one of them. A native to tall-grass prairies, it's often found alongside big bluestem and switchgrass, residing on slopes and in dry soils in full sun, carpeting the landscape with late-summer seed heads and autumn swaths of orange, red and gold. Of all the tall grasses, this is the one I'd most recommend.
