Bouteloua gracilis (BLUE GRAMA)
bloom Aug-Sept | height 1-2’ | full to part-sun
There is nothing more charming than the grasshopper/eyelash-shaped seed heads that form on this warm-season grass. Well, maybe the small orange skippers that it attracts —its a tough call. A great plant for a matrix planting in a sunny spot, plant it in masses or drifts, dotting in bright flowering species like black-eyed susan or aromatic aster. The green-blue foliage and fine texture work well to contrast with more structural wildflowers.
Plants that grow well with BLUE GRAMA: Rudbeckia fulgida variety speciosa (showy black-eyed Susan), Symphyotrichum oblongifolium (aromatic aster), Zizia aurea (golden alexanders)
