Perennial clumps grow up to a foot in diameter

Little bluestem is a very ornamental bunchgrass with fine-textured foliage that forms very dense mounds

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.

This mid-prairie species, also known as Bunchgrass, gets its name from the bluish color of the stem bases in the spring, but most striking is the plants reddish-tan color in fall, persisting through winter snows. In winter the seeds, fuzzy white at maturity, are of particular value to small birds.
