Plant Type: Grasses

'Cheyenne Sky' forms a tight, vase-shaped clump of blue-green foliage that begins turning wine red in early summer. By late summer, nearly the entire clump is drenched in color and is topped by matching wine-red flower panicles held just above the foliage.  It makes a dynamite specimen plant and is even more eye-catching when planted en masse.
