Stand out color. Though native Schizachyriums typically color up in fall, 'Twilight Zone' possesses a nearly iridescent silvery mauve purple cast all over the whole plant beginning in midsummer. It retains these eerily beautiful tones through fall when brighter purple highlights appear on the flower stems. The attractive foliage forms a upright, narrow clump.
Schizachyrium, also known as Little Bluestem, has beautiful silvery seedheads and coppery to mauve-purple foliage color in fall. Deer resistant. Grow Schizachyrium as a specimen, in mass, to add fine texture to a mixed border, or as part of a prairie type planting.
