Winter Hardy, Wine Red Grass

Prairie Winds 'Cheyenne Sky' Red Switch Grass offers a relaxing, soft rustling sound as it sways in the breeze, and also adds a great visual interest in the landscape. This versatile grass is great in containers, mass plantings, or can stand alone.

From Proven Winners, 'Cheyenne Sky' Panicum virgatum USPPAF forms a tight, v-shaped, 3' clump of blue-green foliage that turns wine red in early summer. By late summer, the plant is almost totally saturated in color and forms wine red flower clusters.

Panicum 'Cheyenne Sky' is sturdy enough to withstand the cold winter unless the snow is too heavy. Leave 'Cheyenne Sky' in the garden and, unless covered in snow, it will turn a deep shade of tan and remain through winter.

It displays a nice architectural touch in the perennial border, where many plants die back during the coldest months. Topped by 1' long blooms of burgundy that make fine indoor cuts and attract birds in the autumn garden, 'Cheyenne Sky' is a masterpiece in manageable form!

Indifferent to heat, humidity, drought, wind, and salt, it is a carefree presence you will appreciate anew with each seasonal color change.

  • Wine Foliage and Flowers
  • Cold Hardy
  • Attracts Wildlife
