Andropogon scoparius ‘Blaze’
NEW RELEASE ‘Blaze’ is mostly grown for its intense red autumn foliage but it is attractive from spring well into winter as the leaves are blue in spring ageing to grey green in summer and retaining some of its autumn splendour into winter. Summer flower stems, held well above the foliage, carry small reddish flowers which give way to silver seed heads. Drought tolerant when once established and able to cope with both heat and humidity. Foliage clumps 60-90cm tall by 45-60cm wide. Flower stems up to 150cm tall.
