Little Bluestem is a warm season grass; it actively grows during the summer when soil temperatures are warm.  Generally a species of drier ecosystems, it is very drought-tolerant but it can do well in moist situations too.  Blue-green in the summer and, after the first frost, it will turn a beautiful coppery pink that will remain all winter. A must have in any medium to dry site. Other Scientific Names in use: Andropogon scoparius
