Upright Little Bluestem deserves two thumbs up and a big round of applause. It has all the benefits of the species—with impressive adaptations. Whereas the species might flop with too much fertility or water, ‘Standing Ovation’ remains standing tall. We’re told it generally does not fall down, and even withstood high winds and pounding rain. Sturdy, thick stems play a part in its standup quality. Like the species, foliage starts out beautiful blue with hints of greens, purples and pinks. Fall brings out stunning reds and oranges. Seed heads not only add texture to the landscape, but also provide food for birds and small creatures. Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Standing Ovation’ PP25202 was discovered by our friends at North Creek Nurseries, Landenburg, PA.
