per Plant - 3" Pot
No longer available this season.
'Red October' has attractive foliage that changes color seasonally. Beginning as a gray-blue in spring, deepening to blue-green in summer, and then dramatically turning a brilliant scarlet-red come fall, this grass brings some serious drama! The perfect ornamental grass to add winter interest, 'Red October' is both deer resistant and drought tolerant. (Andropogon gerardii)
