Schizachyrium scoparium ‘Chameleon’

Schizachyrium scoparium `Chameleon” has beautiful green-white striped leaves that change to purple-green striped leaves. This leaf colouring occurs during the season, which makes this small prairie grass so special. This grass also owes its name to this. The flowering period is from September to November. Schizachyrium is a strong grass that makes few demands. It can withstand drought and likes a place in full sun. The grass is good for use in the border, but is also always nice in a decorative pot.
