Common Name: Blue Grama Grass, Ornamental Grass
This is a mid-sized, wispy looking grass that's native to dry, wind-swept prairies, so you'll be sure to have success with it in your garden. Thin, blue-green leaf blades form an upright clump of grass that are topped with horizontally held flowers. While the species, B. gracilis, typically produces purple flowers and seedheads, 'Blonde Ambition' produces yellow seedheads instead. A perfect choice for a low maintenance ornamental grass.
