This drought-tolerant grass thrives even in poor, dry soils, providing cover for birds. Standing Ovation evolves from blue/green in the spring months to orange, red and yellow in the autumn garden. It also provides winter interest and keeps its compact form throughout most of the season. (Schizachyrium scoparium)

Plant Information

40-48" tall x 12" wide. Standing Ovation Little Bluestem Grass is a selected cultivar of our native prairie grasses. Like all ornamental grasses, Standing Ovation adds dimension to every garden, its narrow leaves contrasting nicely with broader leaves of common perennials and shrubs. The grass blades emerge blue-green, gradually turning bright red. Plants bloom in mid to late summer and turn orange, red, and burgundy in the fall. When the wind blows through this grass, the entire garden comes alive with movement. It’s a real stunner, especially when, in fall, the sunlight shines through its leaves, lighting them on fire. Standing Ovation grows best in full sun and is drought-tolerant once established. Will grow well in poor soils. Leave standing in the garden for winter interest and cut back in late winter or early spring.

    Q & A

    Plant With These:

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
