Ornamental grasses and grasslike plants
An important clumping grass in North America’s tall-grass prairie. Grows to 2–4 ft. tall and 1–2 ft. wide, with narrow leaves that may be erect or arching. Late-summer flowers are inconspicuous but age to an attractive silvery shade. Leaf color varies from bright green to distinctly bluish in summer, from light brown to dark red in fall and winter. Types that are bluer in summer take on the deeper cold-weather colors: blue-green leaves of ‘Blaze’ turn a strong red in fall, while ‘The Blues’ has striking light blue leaves that turn burgundy-red. Needs well-drained soil. Keep mulch a few inches away from base of plant.
