Treat yourself to a little piece of heaven in your garden with Blue Heaven Little Bluestem Grass (Schizachyrium scoparium 'MinnblueA'). This angelically beautiful grass has been blessed with striking colors and stunning texture.
Blue Heaven Little Bluestem Grass grows tall in dense and expressive clumps. It's a more upright form of the native with better blue color and less of a tendency to flop over! This great grass features bluish-green new growth foliage that blushes to a glowing amber, bright rose red, and garnet. This showy grass is more than just blues and reds--it mellows to a spicy bronze that lasts through winter.
And while the Blue Heaven Little Bluestem Grass's foliage is striking in its own right, its 3-inch long racemes really create a spectacle in fall. These tall plumes flutter in the breeze and catch the eyes of passersby with their violet and golden hues. Once these flowers fade, they're replaced with puffs of silvery seed heads.
This tall, strong grass is a great choice for gardeners with a penchant for natives. The Blue Heaven Little Bluestem Grass is native to North America's glades, prairies, and fields, yet it also grows fabulously in the north and northwest. It does best in well-drained soil with full sun. When it comes to soil quality, you don't have to pamper this pretty grass. It does well in almost any soil, including clay. It does well when cut back heavily in late winter or early spring.
This bright and joyous grass makes a perfect choice for rain gardens, native gardens, and wooded margins. It will add excellent vertical impact in your cottage garden or as a back border.
