Description Plant Care
 
Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal' (Blue Switch Grass). This variety of Panicum is totally unique from the rest. Leaves are glaucous, purple-blue with a very erect, upright habit. Its upright form creates a formal appearance, softened only by its delicate pink tinged seed heads. Tolerates a wide range of soil types - can tolerate dry to boggy. Prefers a sandy loam. Full sun to partial shade. Can take the heat of summer! Cut back in early spring to promote a new flush of growth. Try it in larger containers for a real statement!
Special Characteristics:
  • Salt Tolerant
  • North American Native
