3g Red Flame Switch Grass
Panicum virgatum 'Red Flame' PP35213


Red Switchgrass/ grows 3-4' ht & 2' sp 

Foliage emerges bluish-green but turns wine-red (by late summer) to form a compact, narrow, erect, 3' tall clump of foliage which is topped in summer by a finely-textured, reddish-pink flower. Has a greater saturation of red than 'Shenandoah'. Flowers turn beige as the seeds mature in fall with the seed plumes persisting well into winter. Foliage also turns beige in fall and provides good winter interest.
