Little Bluestem

Andropogon scoparium

Little Bluestem is a great native grass for any landscape!  It is a mid-height, non-spreading, clump-forming native grass with blue-green leaves that turn reddish orange in the fall. Fluffy silver seed heads are ornamental through winter. Little Bluestem is easy to establish and perfect in short- to mid-height prairie plantings.  It's also great for bioswales and rain gardens, or even containers.
