‘Red October’ is a breakthrough tough native grass that adds a beautiful pop of color with its fall foliage. In the fall, foliage turns a bright scarlet red for several weeks after the first frost. The leaves are tipped with burgundy and held on tall upright green stems in summer. A very hardy plant once established, and doesn’t take much maintenance. Will reach up to 5 ft. tall and 4 ft. wide.
