Emerald Coast Growers Introduces Andropogon ‘Rain Dance’ And ‘Red October’

Emerald Coast Growers has introduced two new andropogons that feed growing market demand for high-interest native grasses.

“These big bluestem grasses offer big potential for expanding sales and ramping up any ornamental grass program,” says Cheri Markowitz, sales manager.

Andropogon ‘Rain Dance’ is available exclusively from Emerald Coast Growers. It features red-tipped foliage, deeper green than the species, that turns totally maroon in fall. Adding to the interest: red flowers on red stems. A sun lover, ‘Rain Dance’ grows to 6 feet tall and is hardy in Zones 3 to 9.

The deep green foliage of Andropogon ’Red October’ darkens to purple in late summer, then vivid scarlet in autumn for spectacular late-season color. ‘Red October’ loves sun and reaches heights of 5 to 6 feet. It’s hardy in Zones 3 to 8.
