‘Standing Ovation’ little bluestem is a warm season grass with blue-green spikey stems and leaves. Fluffy, seed clusters appear in late summer/fall. In fall, little bluestem turns an apricot color that brightens the winter landscape. ‘Standing Ovation’ with its sturdy habit and excellent fall color makes a good accent or mass planting in a perennial or shrub border. Cut back in early spring to make room for new emerging leaves.

Bald Cypress is a striking specimen tree for a variety of large areas since it tolerates a wide range of conditions.
