Description / Standing Ovation Bluestem

Plant Patent Applied For.

This little bluestem is remarkable for its very tight, upright habit, its thick blades, great drought resistance, and lovely colors: red tips transition through purple down to blue-green! 'Standing Ovation' is even beautiful as it goes dormant in winter, when its fine, upright foliage takes on a reddish amber tone. The only maintenance this easy plant requires is that the old growth be cut back in early spring to make way for new growth. It will self-seed and come back larger every year to fill an area, but this spread is slow and never invasive.

This species is a native of the US, with a broad range from Florida west to Arizona and North all the way into Canada. Naturally it is tolerant of a wide range of soils, and it is supremely adapted to drought conditions, thriving in dry prairie like few other plants can!

Named for the reliability of its strong upright habit, this grass stands proud in the face of rain, wind, and even snow! Once you experience the beauty and dependability of this wondrous plant you will want to stand up and applaud! 1 Quart container. Zones 3 to 8.
