Cheyenne Skies Switch Grass is a heat loving grass that starts out green and turns red as the summer wains into fall. It reaches 3 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide, staying in nice clumps. It's also easy to care just water and fertilizer. Can be used in low water use gardens. It prefers at least 6 hours of sunlight.
Frida Kahlo Rose is a floribunda (flowers in clusters) with red blush and gold stripes honoring the famous Frida Kahlo of Mexico who once said, "I paint flowers so they will not die.". It's a heavy bloomer and has had very disease issues at the nursery. The swirl pattern is delightful. Like other roses they prefer at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. This grows to about 3 to 4 feet tall and wide.
