Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Design Plant: Indian Grass
How to use it. Low autumn sunlight often casts a warm glow through the Indian grass and liatris (foreground). If you can't have a water feature in the garden, grass is the next best thing — as the wind blows through Indian grass, it makes the most soothing sound from midsummer to the late winter cut-down. Consider using Indian grass as a semiformal privacy hedge or scattered among taller flowers like liatris, sunflowers, blue sage or goldenrod for a more natural prairie look on dry soils.

Here's a midfall scene from my own garden. Up front is a liatris gone to seed, behind it is a 'Purple Dome' New England aster cultivar, and further back is a stand of tall Indian grass. This design is a bridge between the formal and informal look that I think prairie plants lend themselves to quite well.

Indian grass - If you can't have a water feature in the garden, grass is the next best thing — as the wind blows through Indian grass, it makes the most soothing sound from midsummer to the late winter cut-down.
