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.
