Andropogon gerardii 'Holy Smoke'

  • Attractive grass changes color throughout the season
  • Tall & narrow form for dramatic impact
  • An easy, low-maintenance plant

A superb grass for beds, borders, and cottage gardens. It makes a great focal point with its deep green to burgundy foliage in the spring. It really begins to show off earlier than other ornamental grasses, and the foliage color deepens to almost purple and pink as the season progresses.
