Cape Breeze Switch Grass is a compact fast-growing ornamental grass native to the prairies of North America.  The stiff upright foliage stays green for most of the season before turning reddish purple tips in fall.   In mid-summer stems holding airy clusters of tiny yellow-green flowers raise above the foliage like a cloud which turn bronze in fall and persist through winter.  Prefers part sun and moist well-drained soils.
