Schizachyrium ‘Chameleon’ has multi-colored, showy foliage during the season: green-white striped variegated foliage in spring and early summer that changes to pink and purple (that explains the name!) in late summer and autumn. ‘Chameleon’ flowers in autumn with burgundy-red flowers. The habit is compact, upright and dense. ‘Chameleon’ grows up to about 40” tall and 20” wide. It is a colorful plant for borders, prairie gardens or mixed plantings that demands hardly any maintenance, is drought tolerant and very hardy. Plant ‘Chameleon’ in full sun in a well-drained soil. This beauty can be cut back in late winter or early spring.
