Panicum virgatum 'Rotstrahlbusch' is one of the best red-foliaged grasses for the landscape. It has a more compact habit and upright form than other switch grass selections.The red tones on the leaf blades hold from early summer through fall, climaxing to rich crimson in autumn. This perennial, deciduous grass creates a fine-textured clump and is topped with a haze of beautiful burgundy seed heads in late summer. It is a well-behaved grass and will not seed around in the garden, making it an excellent choice. Mix with warm colors like orange and red, or go for a contrast with brilliant purples. It makes a good specimen but also creates a bold statement in a drift. It is a great companion for fall-blooming asters and sedums. The German cultivar name translates loosely as "red-ray-bush."
