Andropogon gerardii Red October PP# 26,283

Red October PP# 26,283 Big Bluestem

 An Intrinsic Introduction! Our second vegetative form of Big Bluestem and for its fall color it’s hard to beat. Initially it was selected for its finer foliage and has a nice upright habit to 6′. Foliage emerges deep green usually having some red tips from spring on. Starting in August the red highlights increase and deepen to a rich burgundy red. After the first frost usually in October, the foliage turns a more scarlet red taking on a striking appearance. Red flowers begin in August. Full sun is best for the red foliage color. Well drained soil.
