Schizachyrium ‘The Blues’; Schizachyrium scoparium ‘The Blues’ is an erect, upright ornamental grass with shades of blue-green and slight pink tinge at the base of the foliage. Additionally, ‘The Blues’ produces tiny bronze flowers along the length of the stem in late summer and changes to fluffy clusters of sliver-white seed heads in early winter.
Schizachyrium ‘The Blues’ enjoys full sun with well-draining soil but is adaptable to dry or rocky environments and can be grown under black walnut trees. A low maintenance grass, Schizachyrium is tolerant of drought and erosion, making it the perfect fit in both rain gardens and areas of intense sunlight. Schizachyrium is considered one of the most vibrant ornamental grasses, given the variety of colors it features throughout the year and its adaptability to a wide range of growing conditions.
