This selection of Little bluestem was made for its bright autumn coloring which is reddish purple with orangish highlights. Its compact habit and general hardiness has also endeared it to those who do mass plantings along highways and at restoration sites. In addition, it is an favorite forage plant for wildlife. We should also remember that it is an excellent ornamental grass that can be used as an individual specimen or in a group planting in a garden. In habit it forms more of a fountain than Schizachyrium 'The Blues' which is narrower and more upright in our garden.

Late summer.  3 ft. x 3 ft.

Sun     Zones 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
