Bouteloua gracilis 'Blonde Ambition' is a dense, clump-forming, warm season grass noted for its brush- or eyelash-like flower spikes which, in the case of 'Blonde Ambition,' appear bright yellow before turning to seed, when they bleach to a natural pale blonde color. Related to sideoats grama-grass, 'Blonde Ambition' Although showy with seeds and flowers, this cultivar is relatively compact; foliage is relatively low growing, and flower spikes only grow to about two feet tall.

This cultivar of Bouteloua gracilis typically grows to between two and three feet tall with blue-gray leaves that turn to brilliant displays of golden bronze and red in the fall.
