Schizachyrium scoparium 'Brush Strokes' PPAF CPBRAF


Common Name: Little Bluestem, Ornamental Grass

Like bristles on a paint brush the stems of 'Brush Strokes' stand vertical, bend gracefully with the wind, then return to their upright position. Powder blue stems take after their namesake before turning wine-red in early fall. Use this native perennial grass for its fine texture in summer then leave it standing in fall for winter interest.

Schizachyrium is a great choice if you are looking to restore an eroded site, or for a plant that will grow in hot, dry areas where other plants have a hard time surviving.
