Schizachyrium scoparium 'Prairie Blues'
Schizachyrium scoparium 'Prairie Blues'
The shimmering silvery-blue foliage of this North American native looks fabulous used as an accent plant in a border. In autumn the leaves are tinged with orange and pink, and can be left to stand through winter. It copes well with poor soil conditions, and tolerates drought.
