Carousel Little Bluestem PPAF

Schizachyrium scoparium 'Carousel'

‘Carousel’ is a dwarf and somewhat mounded selection of little bluestem, discovered by Donald Boehm at Boehm’s Garden Center in Rushville, Illinois. Mr. Boehm selected ‘Carousel’ for its unique rounded, bowl-shaped habit, superior resistance to lodging in winter and attractive fall color. Its fine green foliage and distinctive upright flowering stems transform into a kaleidoscope of colors in autumn that includes copper, pink, tan and dark orange-red. The stems become beige but stay upright and attractive all winter. Schizachyrium is a warm-season, clump-forming grass native to the prairies and open woods of North America. ‘Carousel’ requires no supplemental water or fertilizer. It is stunning when used in mass plantings, works well in a variety of soil types and is very drought tolerant. ‘Carousel’ will reach 30" tall and 30" wide. Zones 3-9.

Full Service Nursery
• Full Line of Shrubs, Ornamental, Shade & Evergreen Trees
• Native Trees and Shrubs
• We grow most of our trees from locally collected seed in
  ‘Rootmaker’ Bags.  These bags promote a fibrous, non-circling  
  root system that increases transplanting success, even on  
  difficult species like oaks, sassafrass, pawpaw, ironwood and  
  blue beech.  A fibrous root system means quicker  
  establishment, faster growth in the first 3-4 years and  
  ultimately a tree that will THRIVE.
