FULL SUN
An exciting selection of our native Little Bluestem. Shorter form with silvery blue foliage is graceful and maintains its upright habit.

Schizachyrium 'Jazz' is excellent for a sunny mixed border, with other native prairie plants, or in mass with other grasses. Drought resistant.
Late season drama! Smoky blue foliage turns dark purple-red in fall. This selection of our native Little Bluestem has an upright, beautifully refined habit and a strong show of color in late summer and fall. The glaucous blue-green foliage begins to take on deep red tones in late summer, turning a dark red-purple through the fall. Tiny, tan seed heads appear in early fall on the top half of the stems. Able to withstand adverse weather and still remain upright. Drought tolerant when established. Deer resistant. Schizachyrium 'Smoke Signal' is a great choice to establish a native planting, in mass for a beautiful sweep of color, or mingled with tall blooming perennials in an informal border.

 
 

 
 

 
 
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.

Showy and unique pink fruit! Symphoricarpos Proud Berry® has bell-shaped pink flowers in late summer followed by dark pink berries in fall. The color intensifies with cold weather. Rounded, blue-green leaves look handsome all season. Coralberry is a North American native and is amazingly tough, shrugging off deer, cold weather, and problem soils. Excellent to cut for fall bouquets. For the very best fruit set plant in full sun. Grow in natural areas, mixed beds and borders, and cutting gardens. A Proven Winners/Color Choice® selection.
Summer blooms, fall and winter fruit! Plump pink berries form in early autumn from small pink flowers that bloom in mid to late summer.

A rare color for fall and winter, the pink berries will add a bright accent to evergreens or a mixed border. Very pretty with a dusting of snow. Good for cutting. Deer resistant. Compact habit.
