Purple Breeze Switch Grass will add colourful foliage and brighten up your garden or landscape. Flat, linear mid-green leaves turn purple-maroon as the clump-forming grass ages. Airy green flower panicles are flushed with purple, complimenting the foliage, and bloom late summer to fall. Purple seed heads follow. This beautiful Purple Switch Grass is ideal in borders, as a screen, a focal point, or in containers.
