Twilight Zone Little Bluestem is a compact  native  grass with upright slender blue-green leaves that earn silvery mauve tones starting at the tips that progresses through 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.
