Bouteloua gracilis ‘Blonde Ambition’
Blonde Ambition Blue Grama Grass
- Plant Select Winner 2011
(propagated by division). Seldom does a new grass selection offer the gardener something so completely different and exciting. Its profusion of big, showy chartreuse flowers, held horizontally above the leaves is unlike any other ornamental grass in cultivation. An exceptionally large growing selection of our native Blue Grama, it has 2 1/2 to 3 ft. tall stems of flowers that mature to long lasting blonde seed heads.
These flag-like flowers rise up out of the blue-green foliage in mid-summer and are held on stiff, weather resistant stems. ‘Blonde Ambition’ provides exceptional winter interest as the stems of seed heads pop up even after a heavy snow and remain standing through winter, giving the grass 6 to 8 months of garden color and texture.
This beauty is extremely cold hardy, grows in a wide range of soil types and is a perfect choice for low maintenance home or commercial landscapes. Discovered and introduced by David Salman of High Country Gardens. 5″ Premium Pot size
