Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah' (Poaceae)
(PAN-i-cum vir-GA-tum)
Red Switchgrass

This is the brightest burgundy-red Panicum on the market, complete with soft, reddish-pink flower panicles. Leaves emerge green and quickly take on red markings. It's one of the shortest ornamental switchgrasses, topping out at 3-4'. Beautiful behind our pink and apricot fall daisies. Panicums are more tolerant of moist sites than most grasses.
