Part of the Prairie Winds® series of Proven Winners®, Blue Paradise will delight you with its seasonal color changes, elegant habit, and absolute determination to thrive despite environmental stresses! Make it a cornerstone of the permanent sunny landscape this season!

The stems of this Little Bluestem really are blue in spring and summer! They have a silvery glint that catches the eye, and in autumn the show continues when the green foliage turns a rich shade of dark purple. Tan seedheads -- very attractive to birds! -- complete the fall show, and make great fresh and dried cuts for the vase.

Best of all, Blue Paradise thrives in heat, humidity, drought, poor soil, and just about any other stress you can imagine. It stands up brilliantly, its narrowly columnar habit ( 3 to 3½ feet high and 2 feet wide) remaining as fresh in October as it was in April. Wow!

Make Blue Paradise a feature of the foundation, street planting, driveway edging, sunny border, and/or meadow garden. You will be delighted by its native vigor and enduring, ever-changing beauty. Zones 3-9.
