About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Schizachyrium scoparium Prairie Blues:
This grass is a little slow to get going, but it is really hardy and adapts to its growing conditions. I have one planted where it is wet all the time. It gets constant run off from my neighbor's lawn. I have another planted where it is fairly dry all the time. Both are doing great. They are both planted in heavy clay, amended with composted horse manure. They are two years old, and only about 2' tall and may 6" around, but they are slowly filling out. I love the bluish-greenish-greyish color that they add to the garden. The one pictured below is in the dry area, with agastache.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was a very nice grass with a blue-green color. It has survived it's 1st year and I am hoping it will reach a mature size this summer.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
