Common Name: Fountain Grass, Ornamental Grass

This handsome, low-maintenance Little Bluestem was introduced through the Chicagoland Grows® program at Chicago Botanic Gardens.  ‘Carousel’ PP20948 has a lower, broader shape at its base than other Little Bluestem cultivars and remains upright throughout winter months, providing structure in the landscape and cover for wildlife. It prefers nutrient-poor soils and full sun, but it’s less likely to flop with rich soil than other cultivars. This native grass has distinct blue-green foliage, which develops pink, midsummer highlights and transitions to a carousel of fall colors of copper, pink, and mahogany.
