Little Bluestem – Schizachyrium scoparium

Purchased from Prairie Nursery: in a 32 plant kit. If you purchase from them be sure to plant prep for shipping. I was not aware the bottom of the plant containers are open and they dry out quickly! I opted to plant in larger containers for a planting later in the year.

20190611 – 30% loss.  Between the dry out and then a soaking with poor drainage, many schizachyrum are gone.  Should have done more research on its culture.

The things to today – finish potting up seedlings. Check transitioning cuttings for annual pots.
