Schizachyrium 'Blue Paradise' Description

Striking colorful foliage and strict upright habit give ‘Blue Paradise’ serious appeal in the four-season landscape. In spring foliage emerges silvery blue and has a columnar habit growing to a maximum of 3.5’ tall. By late summer foliage shifts to burgundy coloring, accented by tiny tan seed heads. This little bluestem holds its statuesque form throughout winter, providing vertical interest for onlookers and a source of cover for wildlife. As a native plant, it is well suited for tough planting situations - withstanding high heat, drought, and helping stabilize erosion with ease.

Special features: Cut flower, deer resistant, dried flower, drought tolerant, low maintenance, fall color, heat tolerant, multi-seasonal interest, season extender, winter interest, native
