Standing Ovation Little Bluestem

The best thing about a plant with multi-season interest is that you don't have to plan so much on how to keep that space beautiful. This little bluestem brings that sort of easy, seamless season transitions to your landscape. In summer, the blades have blue tones with a deeper purple color around the base. It's a nice pop of dramatic color in the perennial border. In late summer, it's joined by pretty little tan seed heads. Once fall rolls around, the foliage turns to warmer red, orange and purple. Then the grass dries to a wheat-gold hue in winter, which keeps the garden bright in an otherwise sleepy season. The blades are also thicker than the average Little Bluestem's, and this substance helps them stay strictly upright—fabulous for vertical interest. It is a carefree native selection, naturally water wise so it's a good fix for soil that dries out quickly. Easy, stunning and continually transforming through a three-season show... this variety deserves a Standing Ovation! PP25202

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.
