Which do you prefer? I'd love to see any pics you have of it in your gardens.

There's not a dog in the bunch. Each is pretty. There are photos of each you can google. Its simply a matter of your choice as to preference.

RE: 'The Blues' or 'Prairie Blues'

I'm think Prairie Blue. I actually like the spread of the species. Shoot, I can't decide.

RE: 'The Blues' or 'Prairie Blues'

There's also 'Blue Heaven.'

Blue Bluestems

'Blue Heaven' appears to be much more upright than the species, and looks more blue than the other two blue cultivars:


I have a bunch of them in quart containers, and they're really pretty little grasses, but it'll be awhile before I can see what they develop into.

I also have 4 clumps of 'Prairie Blues' which just germinated. It'll be even longer before they start showing off.

That is neat! We have around 100 acreas of prairie meadow. Not much prairie left in this area.
