PICKUP OF PLANTS WILL BE MAY 26 AFTERNOON AND MAY 27 MORNING
Little bluestem has been getting a lot of attention from gardeners as it provides year round visual interest. Plants emerge as the weather warms, and grow into tight clumps of erect, blue-green, fine textured grass, up to a height of 4'. As the weather cools, the grass turns to spectacular shades of orange, red and crimson, and the seed heads develop into showy white tufts. Both the grass, and seed heads, will persist well into winter, and will provide wonderful contrast in areas that receive snow. It is very easy to grow, low maintenance, and highly adaptable. The only conditions it will not tolerate are shade and wet soil. It thrives in poor, dry soil in full sun.
