Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Grows best in an average well-drained soil, in full sun, tolerating drought, once established. Thrives in summer heat and humidity. Plants should be cut back in early spring to make way for new growth. Too much moisture or too fertile a soil will cause flowers to fall over, creating a messy look. Best used in masses, to wave in breezes.

Additional Notes about Twilight Zone Little Bluestem:

Warm Season Grasse: These grasses are much slower starting in the spring. They do not push new growth until temperatures warm in early to midsummer. They flower later in the summer or fall with most blooms remaining into the winter. Most warm season grasses tolerate heat, humidity and drought; some even thrive in these conditions.
