Provides Nesting Materials/Structure for Native Bees

It gives food, shelter, and nesting material to wildlife and attracts birds and pollinators. Little Bluestem requires nearly full sun for upright growth and looks best when cut back in late winter or early spring, allowing new leaf blades to fill in.

Big blue is commonly used in erosion control plantings; although it is sometimes slow to get started. Once it has been established, however, it provides excellent stability for sandy areas. This species is also a good native choice for grazing forage and is very palatable to livestock.
