GRASSES

Panicum virgatum ‘Rubrum’

Red Prairie Switch Grass

Fountain like clumps of fine arching leaves are topped by a cloud of maroon midge-like flowers during autumn. Late in the season the foliage turns bronze red and finally to straw gold during winter. In the past I’ve grown it where it gets regular summer irrigation but these last couple of years a plant has grown happily, with barely a drop of irrigation, in our dry climate garden. 100cm x 80cm.
