Plant Type: Grasses
'Huron Solstice' is a switch grass cultivar. It is perhaps most noted for its blue-green foliage that darkens to wine-purple in summer. This is a warm season grass that typically grows in a dense, narrow, erect clump to 4' tall. Stems retain good upright form throughout the growing season. The foliage clump is topped in early September by large, finely-textured, purple flower panicles that eventually fade to beige in fall. Seed plumes often persist throughout winter, providing visual interest as well as food for birds.
