Twilight Zone Grass - Veseys: Schizachyrium scoparium An improvement over the native North American prairie grass Little Bluestem. Twilight Zone has a marvelous, shimmering blue-steel colour beginning in mid-summer. Will thrive in hot and dry locations, providing an upright columnar clump that is both tidy and narrow and at the same time, airy and light. 3" plug.

Little bluestem - Slender, blue-green stems, appearing in August, reach 3 ft. by September and become radiant mahogany-red with white, shining seed tufts in the fall. Color remains nearly all winter. Perennial clumps grow up to a foot in diameter.
