Blue Heaven Little Bluestem

​Schizachyrium scoparium 'MinnblueA'

Narrow, upright, grassy foliage makes a great vertical accent for a border, rock garden or container. Emerges blue, develops pink and burgundy hues in late summer, and turns a rich copper in fall. Slender stems rise up with purplish panicles. Tan seed heads persist into fall. Perfect for bird friendly landscapes.
