Discussion

Andropogon virginicus var. glaucus grows on moist or dry soils of the coastal plain, from southern New Jersey to eastern Texas. Plants growing on sandy, well-drained soils differ from those on poorly drained slopes in being glabrous (rather than pubescent) beneath the subtending sheaths of the inflorescence units, and in tending to have shorter rames.
