‘Prairie Blues’ Little Blue Stem Grass

‘Prairie Blues’ Little Blue Stem Grass

Schizachyrium scoparium ’Prairie Blues’

Little bluestem is a tidy, finely textured clumping grass with a blue-green summer color. Its silvery seed heads rise to a height of nearly 2 feet in late summer and are at their best when backlit in the morning or afternoon sun. In fall, the grass turns a rosy rust color that lasts all winter.

It is widely adaptable to most soils, except for wet or highly fertile ones. Grow in full sun. Trim close to the ground in spring; it is late to emerge.
