Detailed Description for Schizachyrium

Schizachyrium scoparium, Little Bluestem, is a warm season, clump forming plant which prefers full sun and tolerates a wide range of soil conditions. Its green foliage grows 4' tall and flowers from July to September. The purplish/bronze flowers of Schizachyrium scoparium rise above the foliage in August resulting in brilliant clusters of fluffy silvery-white seed heads which may persist into winter. Little Bluestem adds a bronze-orange fall foliage color that gives a nice presentation when planted in masses. Great for dry banks of stormwater basins.
