Blonde Ambition Grass

Description

It’s rare for grass to have such a big impact, but everyone we’ve shown Blonde Ambition to has fallen in love—it’s absolutely a staff favorite. The fuzzy flower heads stand out horizontally from the wiry stem, like little flags. When it’s caught in a breeze, these golden flags begin to flutter. You’ll find success comes easy with this grass, too—it is a native selection, which is drought tolerant once established and very low maintenance. Cooler climate gardeners will also enjoy its performance as a cold-hardy grass. A creative choice for added interest in a late summer border. Bouteloua gracillis ‘Blonde Ambition’
