In a word, stunning! 'Chameleon' looks like no other Little Bluestem you've seen with brilliantly variegated foliage sporting bold, vertical stripes of white and green. This striking foliage forms a tight, compact, slightly vase-like form that stays in color throughout the growing season with added intensity in fall as cool weather causes pink and red shades to be added to its color palette. Perfect grouped in any sunny garden location! This drought-tolerant plant will also help with erosion control.
