Standing Ovation Schizachyrium (Little Bluestem Grass)
Schizachyrium scoparium 'Standing Ovation'
Exceptionally sturdy stems that don't flop over, even in high winds and heavy rain. Striking blue-green foliage adds great contrast with hints of green, pink, and purple. Foliage color softens in late summer then develops fiery red and orange hues in fall. Showy silver plumes develop seed heads that persist through winter, providing forage for birds.
