ℹ 'Red October' Big Bluestem Grass (Andropogon gerardii) is a striking ornamental native grass! This stunning, large bluestem cultivar adds exceptional architectural interest and a injects a dose of rich scarlet color into the landscape! This Big Bluestem cultivar was originally chosen for its narrow leaves and upright habit, but it’s the foliage color everyone is raving about!   Leaves start lush deep green with red vibrant highlights in spring. As fall approaches, the red takes it up a notch and deepens to burgundy. Then, after the first frost, the foliage turns stunning candy-apple-red hues mixed with scarlet. Even the turkey-foot shaped seed heads of Red October Big Bluestem are shades of red! This creates a stunning effect when planted in borders, as hedges, in mixed beds or to flank a door or patio with! Clump forming grass will grow in neat mounds.
