Twilight Zone Little Bluestem Grass

August 9, 2019 Back to Picks >

Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Twilight Zone’

A stand-out among Little Bluestems for its iridescent, silver mauve shades in midsummer. Pastel tones intensify in fall and bright purple highlights appear. About half as wide
as it is tall; it has a full, upright columnar shape. Thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Put it in tough, dry spots for a gorgeous solution to problem sites. Supports pollinators, provides winter food, nesting material and cover for birds. 2’ tall, 4’ with blooms.
