New plant: Shenandoah Switch Grass

Last year I decided I had to have some grass, er, some ornamental grass in my garden that is! So, now in addition to Northern sea oats, which I highly recommend, I also have this beauty. The foliage reddens as the season progresses. Right now, the star feature is the feathery flowers, which read as pinky-red but as you can see from this closeup, there is a little orange in there.
Panicum virgatum
