Growing & Maintenance Tips for Schizachyrium scoparium 'The Blues'

Easy to grow in full sun.
Grow in dry to average soil. Tolerates heat and humidity easily.
Watering or fertilization is actually detrimental; best left to it's own devices!
Leave foliage in place for winter interest and to provide homes for over-wintering critters. Cut back to the ground in late winter before new growth begins.
