A few years ago, I ordered some prairie switch grass called Cheyenne Sky. I planted it in the back shrub border where it was shaded too much and never looked good.
Last year, I moved it to this bed. After getting established, it seems to have settled in and really filled out this summer. Now, it is getting the burgundy tips and making seed heads. It looks good from all angles.
On a personal note, my mom had heart surgery last week. The doctor had been monitoring her for a few years and it became obvious that blood was not flowing as it was needed. She got a new aortic valve and two bypasses last Wednesday. She is recovering well. A lot of my gardening time has been spent at the hospital. It is nice that she is in our city where I can bop over to see her often.
Be well and enjoy each day.
