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.
