Panicum virgatum ‘Rotstrahlbusch’

Red Beam Prairie Switch Grass

We grow this in the double flower borders with Sedum and that giant of the prairie, Joe Pye Weed. The narrow leaves and airiness of its flowers make this grass a soft contrast to the large leaves and flowers of its neighbours. Red Beam Switch Grass makes a tidy clump of arching green leaves over which, during autumn, hover a myriad tiny flowers like a cloud of midges, reddish at first turning to soft old gold as the season progresses. 100cm x 70cm.
