Blue Heaven is a introduction from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN. Blue Heaven offers beautiful blue-grey foliage in the summer. In September the foliage turns to burgundy red with purple and violet highlights. The fall color lasts well into November. Blue Heaven is a taller, more upright form than is typical of little bluestem. Small, fluffy white flowers form in August and September, but the showy fall color is the highlight of this grass with interest extending into the winter. Blue Heaven remains upright and does not fall down or 'lodge' as some grasses tend to do.
