Product Overview

Bouteloua gracilis

Grass stays short, while seedheads rise above and dance in the breeze. Drought-tolerant perennial with a unique architectural look. Interesting in dried flower arrangements.

Native to the Midwest and Western US, blue grama is the most heat- and drought-tolerant native grass. The fascinating inflorescence (arrangement in a row like eyelashes) turn golden brown and occasionally red in the fall, curling as they dry, and the feathery foliage makes a nice contrast in rock gardens and xeric plantings. Skipper butterflies use this grass as a host plant, and birds enjoy the seeds.

Variety Info

2", purple-green inflorescence (flowers arranged in a row) have small yellow flowers that hang down and the inflorescence curls and turns golden as it dries.

Sowing Inside

10 to 12 weeks before your average last frost date.

Sowing Outside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Can be sown in late summer/early fall so plants get established before winter and get an early start on spring.
