Chameleon Little Bluestem is a dwarf native grass with slender arching green leaves with bright white edges that earn soft pink and purple tones in summer and fall.  Tiny green flowers rise high above the foliage on stems in late summer and are followed by fluffy white seed heads that persist through winter.  Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.

Schizachyrium scoparium is a native host plant for 6 different skippers:  the Ottoe, Indian, Crossline, Dusted, Cobweb, and Dixie skipper.  The seeds are eaten by small birds.
