This 3-plant set of Little Bluestem grasses provides a focal point of blue-green color and texture spring through late summer, offering shelter for birds and other wildlife.

Grown sustainably just for your area, these full-sun plants:

• Turn a deep reddish brown in the fall, followed by white reflective seed tufts that last throughout winter
• Support other wildlife species including birds, butterflies, moths, and bees
• Return each year
• Never need chemicals and require less water once established
• Are deer resistant, once established

This set of Little Bluestem grasses has the potential to support up to:
• 14 butterfly/moth species
• 96% of the backyard birds that rely on larval insects to feed their young

Additionally, this collection provides overwintering habitat for a variety of other insects and wildlife. For example, female bumble bee queens nest at the base of these bunch grasses for protection until they emerge in spring.

All purchases support National Wildlife Federation’s non-profit mission to help declining wildlife and expand native plant availability nationwide.
