Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) 'Shenandoah'

Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah' is a popular switch grass cultivar that is known for its compact habit and striking red-purple fall color. In summer airy reddish-pink flower panicles rise above burgundy highlighted leaves. The panicles turn soft beige in autumn as foliage intensifies to a deep wine red. The winter leaves and seed heads develop an attractive amber glow. This handsome grass thrives in prairie type settings or in sunny gardens with moist, average or dry soils.
