Deep green foliage darkens to purple in late summer, then vivid scarlet in autumn for spectacular late-season color. This warm season grass that was/is the dominant grass of the tall-grass prairie.

Care:

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soils in full sun. Tolerant of a wide range of soils and growing conditions. Puts out lots of growth in moist, fertile soils, but is less apt to topple in dryish, infertile soils. This grass develops an extensive root system and is somewhat slow to establish, but, once established, has excellent drought tolerance.
