Smoke Signal Bluestem

Description
Erect, broomlike clumps of brilliant blue-tinted blades provide summer color to the landscape. What's even better is that the foliage takes on a stunning scarlet-red hue in late summer and turns deep red-purple in the fall with small tan seed heads covering the tops of the stems. Even in winter and spring, this perennial grass maintains its beauty and interest in the garden. Deer resistant. Ships in 3" pot. Schizachyrium scoparium 'Smoke Signal' PPAF

  • Unique CharactersticsThis selection of our native Schizachyrium has a beautifully refined habit and puts forth a strong show of color in late summer and fall. The glaucous blue-green foliage begins to take on scarlet red tones in late summer, turning a deeper red-purple through the fall. Tiny, tan seed heads appear in early fall on the top half of the stems. An improvement over older cultivars, this grass maintains its strictly upright habit through fall. 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.
