Schizachyrium scoparium 'Twilight Zone'

Little Bluestem
Another new selection of our native Bluestem, 'Twilight Zone grows to 4-4 1/2 ' tall and takes on a decidedly silvery purple iridescent look in mid summer, gradually deepening to a darker violet tone in autumn. Winter color is a tawny gold color. May we suggest pairing this grass with silver toned plants, such as Pycnanthemum muticum, as well as other plants that don't mind dry, lean conditions, such as Teucrium, Agastache and Kniphofia.
