Bouteloua gracilis 'Blonde Ambition' is a little grass with a big design impact.  Hundreds of dainty little flags top perfect slender stems and dance in the gentlest of breezes.  They hang on through the winter, providing visual interest when surrounding plants may be dormant and stark.  ‘Blonde Ambition’ is a robust variety with chartreuse flowers that age to straw blond.  Plant in just about any well drained soil that receives full sun, and don’t water too often after it gets established.  Let them fill in, and then cut back on the irrigation.  Plant groups of Bouteloua in low maintenance landscapes, where a flowing natural look is desired.
