Grass Schizachyrium scoparium 'Carousel'
A dwarf selection of Little Bluestem with unique rounded, bowl-shaped habit. Its fine green foliage and upright flowering stems turn into a kaleidoscope of autumn color: copper, pink, tan, to dark orange-red, appearing between September and October.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
