A striking, native Little Bluestem with an upright form, this Chameleon shows that foliage is anything but boring. Chameleon Variegated Little Bluestem is a new cultivar of a native plant, offering amazing hardiness across all North American zones. Green and white in spring, this perennial transitions to pink and purple hues from summer into fall. Burgundy red seed heads appear on the stalks in autumn, adding to the late-season display. You'll love the upright, tightly held form of this schizachyrium, which makes it an ideal plant for borders or in containers. More than just a filler, Chameleon is excellent for erosion control or plantings in woodland gardens. Schizachyrium scoparium 'Chameleon' PP31339
