Panicum virgatum 'Ruby Ribbons'

Straight from the University of Connecticut's breeding program, this exciting new Panicum will get immediate notice in the garden. Why? There is no other Panicum that turns as deeply and fantastically red as this show-stopping selection. Ruby Ribbons is the result of a cross with one parent being 'Heavy Metal' so you know its summer foliage will be metallic blue with red overtones and very attractive. As the cooler weather of fall approaches, so does the red color with the foliage getting so infused with red, you might think you are looking at Pennisetum rubrum from a distance. It is incredibly darker than 'Shenandoah' and perfect for putting on a late summer and fall show of red that will have you riveted. Plant Ruby Ribbons in a sunny spot in any well-drained soil and it will thrive. Plant it in groups to create colorful sweeps in the garden that will take your breath away.
