Super Showy Fall Favorite

Save room for Blaze Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium 'Blaze') grass, as it has a few visual tricks up its sleeve. Like most bluestems, it develops a strongly upright form and delivers an erect, vertical punch in the landscape.

This is a perfect grass for low hedges and as a native mass planting in a modern landscape. Especially useful where space is at a premium, this is a smaller variety. It makes a big impression, without too much of an impact on available space.

This low maintenance grass covers everything in the book. Drought and deer tolerant, it tolerates close proximity to black walnuts. It actually prefers to be grown in poor soils and is cold hardy to Zone 3. Nothing seems to faze this easy care selection.

Ideally, you'll want to site Blaze Little Bluestem so you can see it from a window. You'll love the fluffy seed heads and how it ripples in the wind, bringing movement and sound elements. And you definitely won't want to miss the magic color show.

In spring, you'll appreciate the light blue new growth. Then, during the heat of summer, its blue-green foliage reads as a cool accent. Once the temperatures dip starting in fall, you'll truly understand why we recommend making room in your landscape. The finely-textured foliage turns a dramatic purple, pink, orange and red, that just has to been seen to be believed. Finally, the brilliant fall color mellows in winter to a warm pink, which helps brighten the snowy landscape.

This grass is in high demand by garden designers, so we will sell out quickly. Get your hands on multiples of 3, 5, 7 or 9 to start your native planting.

  • Fabulous Color Through All Seasons
  • Perfect When Massed in a Native Planting
  • Brings Movement to the Landscape
  • Fluffy Seed Heads Add Winter Interest
