Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) 'Rotstrahlbusch'

This red switchgrass gets its name from its numerous burgundy-tipped leaves. Panicum virgatum ‘Rotstrahlbusch’ grows in an upright shape to about three feet, four feet with red-tinted, airy seed heads. Its fall coloring is especially lovely; foliage becomes deep red turning to tan as winter approaches. It provides structure and form in the winter garden. ‘Rotstrahlbusch’, roughly translated, means “red ray bush,” which is a good description of its appearance.
