Little Blue Stem

Schizachyrium scoparium (Little Blue Stem)

Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues'

The Blues Little Bluestem is an incredibly colorful grass that grows in an upright clump form. The baldes of the grass are blue and in late summer burgundy red stems emerge for the plumes. Ass the weather cools in the fall even more colors are visible. Plant this in mass for an awsome effect or at least use it in a mixed shrub and perennial border.
