Panicum virgatum 'Red Flame' is a is a cultivar of Panicum virgatum, an upright, clump-forming, warm weather grass, noted for its greater saturation of red color on each leaf and incredible vigor when compared to other ornamental switchgrass cultivars.

The foliage of 'Red Flame' emerges in the spring with blue-green foliage that turns completely wine-red by summer's end before turning yellow and beige in the late autumn. This cultivar typically grows to about three and a half feet tall. Slightly more compact than other cultivars, 'Red Flame' also makes for great container plant.

Switchgrass is generally noted for its stiff, upright form, and retains its column-like behavior throughout the growing season and into the winter, when it is used as a valuable source of food and shelter by birds and small mammals.
