Switch Grass was an important component of the Tall-grass Prairie that once covered much of the Great Plains. This selection forms a tall, upright clump of green leaves, bearing airy heads of tiny green flowers in late summer. Fall colour is a vibrant burgundy-red. Usually attractive in the garden all winter long. Flowers are good for cutting, fresh or dried. Trim back to the ground in early spring. Clumps are easily divided in spring. Drought tolerant once established.
