Schizachyrium scoparium 'Twilight Zone'



Common name: Little Bluestem Grass

 This Schizachyrium is very different from other Schizachyrium.  Most Schizachyriums t color up in fall, ‘Twilight Zone’ possesses a nearly iridescent silvery mauve purple cast all over the whole plant beginning in midsummer. It retains these eerily beautiful tones through fall when brighter purple highlights appear on the flower stems. The attractive foliage forms a strictly upright, narrowly columnar clump that is about half as wide as it is tall.

This grass would be stunning in combination with silver foliage plants like Silver Mound Artemisia in a sunny, hot, dry spot in the landscape.

 Schizachyrium is a great choice if you are looking to restore an eroded site, or for a plant that will grow in hot, dry areas where other plants have a hard time surviving.

 Ornamental Grasses add graceful texture and movement to the garden.  Grow this deer resistant variety in full sun. 

Grass plants are often small in size on arrival, they are often just waking up from dormancy and will grow quickly through the summer. Provided regular watering and fertilizer to help establish the young plants.
