Price: $7.80
The 'Rostrahlbusch' Red Switch Grass Plant is considered to be one of the best ornamentals for red foliage. It has an upright habit and slightly narrower, red-tinged leaves throughout the season, putting on more intense red in the fall, and keeps its color through the winter. It is perfect for container plantings and for small garden applications. Its blossoms are pinkish-beige and present from July through February in some climates.
