Details
Why we love it:
  • Panicum virgatum plants (commonly known as switchgrass) are grown as ornamental grasses with stunning autumn colour and because they produce an interesting textural contrast in plantings thanks to the light, airy effect given by their flowers
  • These switch grasses are natives in prairies and natural grass meadows in North America
  • Panicum virgatum 'Prairie Sky' is a useful plant with an upright habit and glaucous, blue-green foliage
  • In autumn it is topped with blue-green flowers and later the foliage turns a lovely golden yellow
  • We love this switchgrass used in perennial borders as an accent plant where its late summer and autumn colour will help to add drama and texture
