Andropogon gerardii 'Red October'


Big Bluestem

Wow, the color . . . the foliage starts a deep green with red highlights in the spring and increasingly gets redder as fall approaches. Once you get a frost the foliage turns candy-apple-red. The leaves are narrow with an upright habit. Native and is drought tolerant once established.
