Little Bluestem is a native grass with upright slender leaves with a blue tinge at the base.  Tiny purple-brown flowers rise high above the foliage on stems in late summer and are followed by fluffy white seed heads that persist through winter.  The foliage has excellent bronze-orange fall color. Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.  Drought tolerant once established.

Schizachyrium scoparium is a native host plant for 6 different skippers:  the Ottoe, Indian, Crossline, Dusted, Cobweb, and Dixie skipper.  The seeds are eaten by small birds.
