Fine leaf blades shine with a more intense blue color than most of the species, and late summer brings slender deep-purple plumes atop the foliage for an added layer of color. In autumn, small, airy, silver-white seed heads glisten in the autumn sun, against foliage that shifts to a warm bronze-orange color. Leave standing over winter to enjoy the colors and textures. An outstanding choice for both formal structured mass plantings and natural-looking landscapes. An exceptionally cold-hardy grass. (Schizachyrium scoparium)Learn More
Little Bluestem delivers a colorful show from a tough native grass
A native prairie grass, Little Bluestem can withstand a range of conditions including arid, low rainfall climates and poor soils. As a tenacious grower, it's excellent at controlling erosion and can be used to stabilize slopes, banks, and other vulnerable areas. And it does all of these things with grace! Little Bluestem's foliage offers hints of silver, blue and pale gray early in the season and is followed by colorful plumes and seedheads before turning a charming rusty-bronze in fall.
