(Red Switch Grass) A Red Switchgrass!!! Panicum 'Prairie Fire' PP19,367 will likely become one of the hottest grasses on the market. This spectacular Red Switch Grass has blue-green stems with wine-red leaves. In the spring the foliage is blue-green, but by early summer the leaves are already turning their stunning red color. In late summer a bouquet of rosy panicles is displayed just above the foliage. When in bloom the leaves curl slightly, which gives the impression of red ribbons woven throughout the flowers. 'Prairie Fire' PP19,367 is a stunning grass that is a must have for every garden! Special thanks to breeder Gary Trucks for an outstanding introduction!
