This cultivar of the prairie grass, Little Bluestem, has stunning blue foliage accented by red stems. As fall progresses, an exciting mix of colors appears: purple, orange, and many more shades of blue. Schizachyrium scoparium ‘The Blues’ grows in a mostly upright, clumping form, and it prefers poor soil to soil that is rich and fertile. Elegant seed heads complement the narrow foliage in late summer. In full sun, this native grass remains stiffly upright; too much shade, fertilizer or water may cause it to flop. Schizachyrium scoparium ‘The Blues’ is sought after for its wonderful color display and easy-care properties.
