Standing Ovation Little Bluestem is a native grass with upright slender blue-green leaves with tips and purple tints at the base.  The foliage has dazzling shades of yellow, oranges, red, and purple-browns fall color.  Tiny green flowers rise high above the foliage on stems in late summer and are followed by fluffy white seed heads that persist through winter.  Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.

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.
