What’s not to love about ‘Cheyenne Sky’? I love the compact habit that allows this grass to be grown both in containers and in the landscape. What is really a great selling point is that the blades start to turn a deep rich burgundy as early as June, well before any other Panicum to date.

(Red Switch Grass) PRAIRIE WINDS® ‘Cheyenne Sky’ Panicum offers a relaxing, soft rustling sound as it sways in the breeze, and adds great visual interest in the landscape. From Amber Wave Gardens, this red switch grass forms a tight, V-shaped, 3 foot, clump of blue-green foliage that turns wine red in early summer. By late summer the plant is almost totally saturated in color and forms wine red flower clusters. A very versatile grass, ‘Cheyenne Sky’ is great in containers, mass plantings, or can stand alone. It is sturdy enough to withstand cold winter months. This Switch Grass makes an excellent addition to PROVEN WINNERS® Perennials.

    Fabulous
    This Panicum is absolutely fabulous all season and is drought tolerant once established. It is far superior to the Shenandoah cultivar.
