Genus Notes - Schizachyrium
A short native clumping grass noted for its blue summer foliage and bright fall color. Excellent for massing or naturalizing as a ground cover. Drought tolerant and prefers poorer soils.

Schizachyrium is a great choice if you are looking to restore an eroded site, or for a plant that will grow in hot, dry areas where other plants have a hard time surviving.
