Grass Panicum virgatum 'Ruby Ribbons'
This upright switch grass, out of Dr. Mark Brand’s breeding program, emerges gray-green in spring and changes to deeper hues of ruby-red from mid summer to fall. The red flowers are often used in dry flower arrangements and appear August-September. Very nice cultivar. PP#17944.
