Schizachyrium scoparium

1000 seeds


A beautiful grass that provides a variety of coloring year round. In spring it is a powdery blue, turning to a purple at the base in summer with pretty rosy plumes that are an amazing contrast to the blue foliage. It turns red in autumn and them to coppery red in the winter.

Little Bluestem is like the big sister of fescue but much larger and really isn’t “little” at all. It actually grows 2-3 feet tall and 1 foot wide and makes for an impressive display.

Hardy down to zone 3, (zones 3-9) little bluestem adds seasonal interest year round.

It is a native prairie grass that helps against erosion and provides a source of food for wildlife in the summer with its pretty pretty pink plumes.

Germination is greatly improved by either storing the seeds in your refrigerator for 30-60 days or sowing in very early spring so that the seeds are exposed to temperatures in the 40's, then 60's and finally in the 70's which is typically when the seeds sprout. In cool climates, plant now for a spring emergence. In warmer climates, store them in your refrigerator first.

This is for approx 1000 seeds.
