Ornamental Grass - Little Bluestem 'The Blues' - 2 Gal.


Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues'

This outstanding native thrives in many landscape spots while providing food and shelter to some of our most beloved native birds. This sun lover forms clumps with loads of slender green foliage, producing a 2' mound by mid-summer. Whether in moist or dry soils this plant looks great in groups especially when seed stalks emerge in August and produce purplish-bronze flowers that provide a stunning color contrast to the foliage followed by white, fluffy seed heads that attract a raft of birds. Want more color? Take a look at this plant's bronze to orange fall foliage color that may be its most outstanding visual feature.
