Little Bluestem is found throughout the central and eastern United States and is also called Prairie Beard Grass and Broom Sedge. The delicate inflorescences have a striking translucence in the winter landscape and are useful cut fresh or dried. Little Bluestem is most effective planted as a large-scale groundcover or for naturalizing, and deer avoid this plant.

Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium) arrives in a 1 quart pot.
