Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah'

Shenandoah is a switch grass cultivar that features green foilage that emerge with red tips in spring, darken through summer, and turn a rich burgundy in fall.

Foliage is topped in Mid-Summer by finely textured, pink-tinged, branched flower panicles that hover over the foliage like an airy cloud.
