PANICUM RED FLAME
Grower Notes:

Panicum virgatum 'Red Flame' PP35213 is commonly referred to as Red Flame Switch Grass. This native switchgrass is very similar to P. 'Shenandoah' but with a more stunning red fall color and increased vigor. Its foliage is blue-green during the growing season and turns almost completely wine red by the end of summer.

Red Flame Switch Grass is very adaptable and can even remain standing through winter unless the snow is heavy. This allows for perfect winter hiding spots for wildlife. Red Flame thrives in full sun and can tolerate light shade. It can also tolerate wind and salt, and enjoys average, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Great for seaside areas or along roads that may get salted.
