Andropogon 'Prairie Blues'

An extremely ornamental, garden-worthy, silvery-blue grass with fine, upright foliage and form bringing appeal through the seasons with its delicate silver fluffy seed heads late summer to autumn, and its blue foliage aging to orange-red through to straw as autumn progresses. Thrives in heat and dry conditions. A perfect complement to summer flowering perennials in a sunny, free-draining position.

How to grow

Plant in full sun or with morning sun/afternoon shade. Thrives in dry, sandy soils, but adaptable provided soil is well-draining. drought-tolerant, low maintenance ethereal blue grass that needs no attention apart from an annual cut back in winter. New growth appears in spring and grows rapidly once the weather warms.
