Ruby Ribbons® delights with deep, rich color early in the growing season. It’s similar in size to Panicum virgatum ‘Shenandoah’, P. virgatum ‘Rotstrahlbusch’, and P. virgatum ‘Hänse Herms’, but has a blue-green cast to the foliage and fuller, earlier color. By midsummer, most of the foliage develops purple-red hues. As with other Panicum virgatum cultivars, you can count on it taking a wide variety of growing conditions and being unpalatable to deer. Ruby Ribbons® is a result of a cross between Panicum virgatum ‘Heavy Metal’ and Panicum virgatum ‘Hänse Herms’, chosen from among 300 seedlings for its color and vigorous growth habit. It was discovered and selected by Dr. Mark Brand of the University of Connecticut. Asexual propagation is prohibited.
