Grass ‘Standing Ovation’ Schizachyrium scoparium

Description

Standing Ovation is a clump forming grass, so it does not run and become weedy in the garden. During the growing season, it has superior bluish green leaves turning to shades of purple at the base. It remains uniform in the landscape, giving your garden a much cleaner and formal appearance. Summer brings on tall flowering spikes, followed in the fall with fluffy white seed heads that are a good food source for many local birds. The blue and purple summer color changes to spectacular oranges in the fall. The foliage stands tall through most winters, giving much needed winter interest and texture. The bronze cast of the winter foliage looks stunning against a fresh snow. This grass keeps its good color through the winter until it is cut to about 3” from the ground in the spring, allowing for fresh new blue foliage to emerge. Standing Ovation grows best in full sun and drier soils.
