Schizachyrium scoparium 'Twilight Zone' PP27432

Little Bluestem

'Twilight Zone' Little Bluestem is a tall native grass which thrives in dry, sterile locations.  This selection was introduced by Walters Gardens because of its vivid coloration, which is visible starting in mid summer, earlier than many Schizachyriums.  The leaves and stems sport shades of silver, mauve and purple which become more purple and burgundy as the weather cools.  The seedheads appear in early fall and are both beautiful and a source of food for birds.  Dry sites are critical to keeping 'Twilight Zone' upright.
