Little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) 'Prairie Blues'

'Prairie Blues' is an outstanding choice for sustainable landscaping and environments with poor soil, low water, and full sun. In addition, it is valued for its improved, enduring, blue-gray coloring, fall color, and low-maintenance properties. Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Prairie Blues’ is stunning when planted in large sweeps and masses, or tucked among flowering native perennials and groundcovers. Like the species, this Schizachyrium scoparium cultivar produces downy white seeds in October providing contrast to its great fall color. It is a fresh plant for formal and informal landscapes. Leave it standing in winter and cut back in spring before new growth appears.
