This striking native selection exhibits outstanding landscape color throughout the year with bright green foliage sporting red accents in the summer. As weather cools, stems and blades turn deep purple to black to stunning landscape effect.
Andropogon gerardii is very tolerant of diverse conditions, but is most often found in full sun, dry and sandy to clay soils. It grows quickly in moist, fertile soils, but is more likely to bend and fall over. Clumps can be divided in early summer, but bring a sturdy shovel!
