Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Wednesday Vignette

I took this photo the other day in preparation for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day/Foliage Followup, which is coming up later this week, but I realized when I looked it over that I was of two minds about it. Is it Bloom or is it Foliage?

I love the contrast between the blue leaves of the Schizachyrium 'Blue Heaven' against the multi-colored, warmer tones of the Panicum (probably 'Rotstrahlbusch'), which is topped by a filmy scrim of "flowers."

So I figured it made a good shot for Wednesday Vignette, hosted every Wednesday by Anna at Flutter and Hum. Check out her post, and be sure to check out the links from other bloggers in the comments.

Schizachyrium 'Blue Heaven' against Panicum


  1. I'm so jealous of people who get that wonderful suffused purple color in their Schizachryium...gorgeous!

  2. You have a way with words "filmy scrim" says it all.

  3. Autumn is a great time for grasses.

  4. Oh, that's a double whammy worthy of both Bloom Day and FFU, if you ask me. Love them both - especially together!

  5. Nice combo! The Schizachyrium is especially beautiful, but probably wouldn't show up as well without the Panicum in the background.


Gardening is a solitary activity. But blogging about it is a social phenomenon! I don't make money from my blog by advertising, or use it to drive customers to a business. If you liked my post, or my writing or photography, or even just one picture or turn of phrase, I'd love to hear from you. That's how I get paid.
