the grass is bluish/greeny-bronze-red on the other side
I've got a half-dozen or more "ornamental grasses" in my yard, not counting monkey grass (which doesn't count anyway, it's in the lily family).
Of all these, the little bluestem may be my favorite. Unlike the one pictured in the hyperlink, mine is very blue. The stems turn reddish in the late fall.
Because I am a plant collector and am often crowding things together, I don't have room in my yard for a large sweep of anything. But if I did I would love to experiment with this grass.
