Full Sun, Partial Sun

The Prairie Fire Switch Grass is an attractive ornamental grass growing 4 to 6 feet tall. It has burgundy-red leaves from early mid-summer all through fall, that curl over in an attractive way. The feathery red seed-heads add to the beauty later in the season. It is non-invasive and grows easily in most gardens, with good drought resistance. Grow it as an accent in shrub or flower beds, or on slopes and banks among rocks and gravel. It’s an excellent plant for containers and boxes as well.

  • Burgundy-red leaves and seed-heads
  • Richly colored from mid-summer to late fall
  • Attractive fountain-like form
  • Drought resistant and non-invasive
  • Good cold resistance

Full sun will develop the richest coloring in the Prairie Fire Switch Grass, but it can take a little partial shade as well. It will grow in most areas, including places that are intermittently wet. Once established it has good drought tolerance, and grows best in areas that are not too fertile or constantly damp. There are no significant pests or diseases, and deer don’t normally eat it. Cutting short once a year, in late fall or spring, is all the care needed.
