Prairie Blues Little Bluestem Grass
No longer available this season.
'Prairie Blues' is an exceptional variety of native Little Bluestem Grass, selected for its vibrant color and compact growth. 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)
