Elliott's Lovegrass, Eragrostis elliottii, is a clumping, perennial native grass with pretty bluish green foliage that grows low to the ground in dense tufts, 18 to 30 inches tall. In late summer the fine-textured inflorescence appears like bluish-green clouds hovering at ground level. Eventually this inflorescence breaks off and floats loose. Pruning back the inflorescence at this late stage of flowering can help to keep the landscape tidy.This is a good companion plant for many wildflowers or a good naturalistic ground cover. Plant in full sun in average to moist soil. It can be a great naturalistic or contemporary look in a pot as well..
