Big Bluestem 'Red October'

Latin name: Andropogon gerardii 'Red October'

This stunning, large bluestem cultivar adds architectural interest and a injects a dose of rich scarlet color that contrasts beautifully with the tawny browns and greys of autumn.

Red October emerges with strong red foliage highlights in spring, and after frost, it finishes the season in deep, glorious scarlet. With year-long visual interest, Red October is great for meadow and back of border installations, and is widely adapted to many soil types. Clump forming grass will grow in neat mounds.
