Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues' (Little Blue Stem)

Schizachyrium scoparium  'The Blues' (Little Blue Stem)

Little Blue Stem

Zone 3 - 9

AKA Andropogon scoparius. This native, clumping grass is exceptionally drought tolerant. It has slightly arching blue-green leaves which turn flame-coloured in the fall and remain showy throughout the winter. Silvery seedheads appear in late summer and persist through fall.

Prefers average well-drained soil in full sun and can tolerate drought, once established. Thrives in summer heat and humidity. Plants should be cut back in the spring to make way for new growth. Too much moisture or too fertile a soil will cause flowers to fall over, creating a messy look. Spectacular when mass planted, undulating and moving in the breeze. HEIGHT: 80-90 cm SPREAD: 60-70 cm
