‘Standing Ovation’ is a cultivar of our native little bluestem which has blue leaf blades with red tips. Leaves turn shades of red and maroon in the fall with lasting color. It grows between 2 to 4 feet tall, depending on the conditions it is placed in. It can grow in a wide variety of soils, from rocky and extremely dry, to rich with moderate moisture. It can tolerate high heat and exposure and is deer resistant. This tough plant is a great addition to almost any landscape as long as it is in full sun.
