Description Plant Care
Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues' (Little Bluestem Grass). 'The Blues' features erect, upright, broom-like clumps of slender leaves which are tinted blue. Pinkish-tinged stems. Foliage acquires burgundy-red tones in autumn. Purplish-bronze flowers appear on branched stems rising above the foliage in August. Flowers give way to clusters of fluffy, silvery-white seed heads which may persist into early winter. Blue foliage and fall color are probably the best ornamental features of this grass. The species is a Missouri native which was one of the dominant grasses of the rich and fertile soils of the tallgrass prairie. Keep mulch away from the base of the plant.
