Panicum Prairie Rose® 'Apache Rose' Description

‘Apache Rose’ switch grass adds unique color to the fall landscape with its pretty pink flower heads and red-tinted foliage. With such a statuesque habit you might think it wouldn’t provide the same movement as other ornamental grasses, but its gracefully arching leaf tips move easily and create the swishing motion and noise we’ve come to love! It remains upright through winter to provide visual interest and cover for wildlife. Looks fantastic when planted in masses!

Special features: Cut flower, deer resistant, dried flower, drought tolerant, low maintenance, fall color, heat tolerant, long-blooming, multi-seasonal interest, season extender, winter interest, supports wildlife, native
