SHENANDOAH RED SWITCH GRASS
Shenandoah is an attractive, compact cultivar of our native Switch Grass. Blue-green foliage has burgundy tips in the spring, and turns burgundy-purple in the fall. Airy panicles bloom in late summer. The stems hold up in the winter, and the seedheads provide a good winter food source for birds. Shenandoah is hardy and adaptable, and can tolerate drought, clay soils, and brief, wet periods once established. It is a great ornamental grass to plant in groupings or in a border.
