This Panicum is called Tall Switchgrass for a very good reason. At seven feet, eight feet with blooms, it is one of the tallest of the switchgrasses. During the growing season, it has stunning blue gray foliage, which turns a deep gold color in the fall. Airy, billowy seed heads appear in mid summer and remain attractive into winter. Tall Switchgrass grows in a loose vase shape and should be allowed some space in the landscape. Plant it in masses or behind shorter grasses and perennials. As with others in the Panicum genus, it tolerates poor soil, dry conditions, and prefers no fertilizer or special care simply cut back in early spring. Plant it in full sun for strong growth. Panicum virgatum ‘Cloud Nine’ is a great native grass substitution for Miscanthus.
