Red October Big Bluestem

Striking Ornamental Grass
Dramatic height and vibrant color combine into one original ornamental. A Missouri native, Red October Big Bluestem once dominated the Tallgrass Prairie that covered much of the midwestern United States. Now you can enjoy its bold colors and graceful movement in your own landscape. Throughout midsummer, the deep green blades are highlighted in red. But when fall arrives, they take on a brilliant scarlet hue that's sure to get attention. Great for back borders or as a unique privacy screen.
