Description


Lax, steely blue stems create impressive clumps, introducing movement and texture. Airy, blue-green flowerheads form in late summer and autumn, creating a hazy cloud while the autumnal foliage flushes with golden-yellow tones. Known as 'Switch Grass' because of the gentle sound created when rustled by the wind, Panicum Prairie Sky is deer resistant and drought tolerant. Untroubled by saline conditions, happily growing in coastal areas. Panicum virgatum Prairie Sky will naturalise by rhizomes, yet is not invasive. Panicum virginicum are a wide family of grasses originating from North America and Canada where it grows on prairies. Many new varieties have been bred from the ancient parent. Fully hardy to -15 C, Panicum virgatum Prairie Sky reaches around 1.2-1.5m tall, spreading to around 75cm. Happiest in sun and will cope with part shade, it is not fussy on soil conditions, moist or dry, clay, loam, chalky or sandy. The seed heads and foliage create winter interest - if left until being cut back in February or March.
