Blue Heaven® is a robust, tall and bright variation of Little Bluestem. It starts out with light blue foliage in the spring. Deep pink and burgundy hues materialize during late summer and graduate into copper at the leaf tips in the fall. Blue Heaven® remains upright under snow cover, a great advantage in Northern landscapes. Blue Heaven® attracts birds and serves as a larval host for several species of skipper butterflies. Once established Schizachyrium scoparium ‘MinnBlueA’ PP17310 is drought tolerant and deer leave it alone. Blue Heaven® loves sun and well-drained soils with poor nutrients. Excess moisture, fertility, and shade may result in floppy growth. Blue Heaven® is a naturally occurring hybrid of Schizachyrium scoparium selected by the University of Minnesota-St. Paul.
