Little Bluestem, Andropogon scoparius

Once one of the most abundant of prairie grasses, Little Bluestem is only 'blue' (blue-green) when the shoots come up in early summer. Flowering stalks can be tan to brown to rusty red in color and retain that shade throughout winter. A good forage grass and adapts well when planted on poorer soils. *Attracts Birds and Butterflies*
