Red October Bluestem is primarily grown for its highly ornamental fruit. The coppery-bronze seed heads are carried on showy plumes displayed in abundance from late summer to early fall. Its attractive grassy leaves are dark green in color with showy purple variegation and tinges of red. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous scarlet in the fall. The red stems can be quite attractive.
