Plant Features

The Shenandoah Panicum (Switch Grass) Plant is one of the brightest and most intense red switch grasses! Shenandoah has blue-green leaves that are tipped in red. Beginning as early as June and continuing as the seasons progress the foliage takes on more and more of a red coloration such that by fall the foliage is a lovely dark purple. Airy red flower panicles emerge in late summer and bloom just above the foliage. Cut plants back in early spring.
