Plant Description

Shenandoah' is considered to have the best red coloring of all the switch grasses. This one starts out red in June, by mid-summer it looks like Bloodgrass, and in fall, it is a rich burgundy. Given full sun and average soil, it is a slow grower reaching up to 4 feet. Pink Boltonia, Smooth Aster, and Seashore Mallow would be great with it.
