Shenandoah Switchgrass - My $1 MVP

I still can't believe I got this ornamental switchgrass for $1 last July, on sale at Lowe's because it had a fungal infection. I cut it back and it re-grew just fine, and even put out some signature maroon leaves in late summer.

Now, in Spring 2016 it's my first ornamental grass to wake up. It's got the heart of a champion, and I'm sure in no time it will be hiding my electric meter and providing vertical interest in my side yard.

On a side note, I wonder why my Northwind switchgrass is a warm weather grass that doesn't wake up until later in the summer, but this one is already up and running in March!

Shenandoah already awake in March
