Rocky Knoll Farm
Carousel (schizachirum scoparium)
Carousel has multicolor grass blades that form a nice and rounded growth habit, and it generally remains upright through the offseason winter months. The blue and green foliage of this grass turn to a great bronze and purple in fall, collectively making this a year-round attraction. Low maintenance and easy to grow, you will want these beauties planted in full sun if possible. Carousel is helpful at preventing erosion, it is deer resistant, and drought tolerant when established. It attracts butterflies and bees when in bloom, and songbirds when in seed. It can grow to about 30" tall x 30" wide, and is cold hardy to -30°F when protected from windchill.
Our 1 gallon grasses are rooted, fertilized and ready to burst with new growth. Some grasses grow very tall and change in size rapidly across seasons. If you order a grass that is very tall at the time, we will trim it as needed for shipping.
