Grass, Little Bluestem

Schizachyrium scoparium

Commonly called little bluestem, it is native to prairies, fields, clearings, hills, limestone glades, roadsides, waste areas, and open woods. It was one of the dominant grasses of the vast tallgrass prairie region which once covered rich and fertile soils in many parts of central North America. Features upright clumps of slender green leaves tinged with blue at the base. Purplish-bronze flowers appear above the foliage in late summer. Flowers are followed by clusters of fluffy, silvery-white seed heads. Fall bronze orange color is considered one of its most outstanding features.
