Bouteloua gracilis ‘Blonde Ambition’ full sun

Taller and more energetic than the species, 'Blonde Ambition's dense finely hewn tufts provide a blue-green foil for cut-flower-perfect inflorescences, which grow at 90° angles and summon our attention well into winter. The large chartreuse seed heads broadcast eye-catching platinum blonde shades once they mature, waving like splendid flags atop stiff 2 ½ ft. slender stalks. Discovered by David Salmon of High Country Gardens as a chance sport in a Santa Fe, New Mexico garden, this tough heady grass struts golden brown, orange and red foliar autumn colors and shimmers when interwoven with Sesleria and flanked by Hydrangea paniculata 'Mega Mindy'. (pp#22,048)

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 2-1/2'–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
