Bouteloua gracilis Blonde Ambition

Bouteloua gracilis 'Blonde Ambition' PP22048

Blue Grama

'Blonde Ambition' Blue Grama is a lovely low maintenance native grass which has unusually shaped inflorescences. The orange to straw colored flowers are held horizontally off the stems, so that they look like tiny feathers. This is especially lovely when back lit by afternoon sun. When planted in mass, Bouteloua 'Blonde Ambition' can serve as an infrequently mowed lawn, since it does best in full sun. It was introduced by David Salman of High Country Gardens, and brought to our attention by Steve Castorani of North Creek Nurseries.

PRN Preferred:  A fun whimsy appeal, what other grass has horizontal seedhead that last well into the winter?
