'Little Bluestem', Schizachyrium scoparium, is a native American prairie grass. It is also know as "Sage grass" or "Beard grass'.
It can reach up to 3-4' and has a silver bluish hue to the leaves during the growing season.
Flowers are scattered along the upper parts of the stem branches, with long white hairs creating a feathery appearance. There is also a single, white, hairy flower cluster at the tip of each stalk.
In fall, the leaves turn a rich orange-wheat color which persists all winter,providing food for birds and cover for small animals. It also provides cover and feeding sites for quail, turkeys and other ground nesting birds.
It will grow anywhere and will tolerate poor soils. A great plant for mass plantings.
