Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation'
Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation'
Common Name: little bluestem

A North Creek discovery sure to give a brilliant performance in the landscape, worthy of applause.  It keeps a tight, upright habit throughout the entire season and has stood strong even in the rich soils of our trial gardens. A warm season grass that does well in poor, dry soils.  Spikey bluish-green stems and leaves transition to a sizzling display of oranges, reds, yellows, and purplish-browns in the autumn.  Also provides winter interest before cutting back in early spring to make way for new growth.

Height: 3-4 Feet
Spread: 12-18 Inches
USDA Hardiness Zone: 3-8
