Little Bluestem is a drought tolerant warm season native grass that blooms from summer to fall—a foundation grass in the Great and High Plains. Form is a basal cluster of short blades followed by an 18 inch to 3 foot tower depending upon water amount. Fluffy russet seed heads ripen in fall above foliage that also takes on burgundy color through winter. Blaze is greener in summer and more russet red in winter than the species. Height is 2 to 3 feet.
