Description

Schizachyrium 'Standing Ovation' is an improved selection of one of the most prevalent native grasses in the eastern United States. It keeps a tight, upright habit throughout the entire season and has stood strong even in the rich soils of our trial gardens.

Sturdy, upright stems with blue cast, dark purple closer to base
Brilliant, fiery-colored foliage through fall
Blades are thicker than other Schizachyrium species

A warm season grass that does well in poor, dry soils.  Spikey bluish-green stems and leaves transition to a sizzling display of oranges, reds, yellows, and purplish-browns in the autumn.  Also provides winter interest before cutting back in early spring to make way for new growth.
