Latin Name: Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah'
Shenandoah Reed Switch Grass features airy plumes of rose flowers rising above the foliage in mid summer. Its attractive grassy leaves are green in color with prominent ruby-red tips. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous burgundy in the fall. The brick red seed heads are carried on showy plumes displayed in abundance from late summer to mid fall. The brick red stems are very colorful and add to the overall interest of the plant.
This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cut back to the ground in late winter before active growth resumes.
