2014 Perennial Plant Association's Plant of the Year. Tall, strongly erect ornamental grass. Pillars of olive blue-green blades provide strong vertical form - great as an accent or in a row for screening. Airy panicles of yellow seed heads crown the blades at bloom time. Turns a warm tan-yellow in the fall.
Panicum Northwind supplies an ideal wildlife habitat providing shelter and food for songbirds. Tolerates both wet and dry conditions. Switch Grass gets its name from the calming swishing sound produced with a gentle breeze. This tough ornamental grass is deer resistant, will grow near black walnut trees and even tolerates salt spray near the ocean and road salt.
Panicum are strongly vertical grasses with good color. Best form is achieved in full sun, more open habit if given too much shade. Airy clouds of flowers (seed panicles) provide winter interest and food for birds. Ideal grass for stabilizing slopes prone to erosion. Ornamental Grasses are restricted from Idaho and Oregon.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Prefers moderately fertile, well-drained soil. Cut back in early spring to 3-4" before new growth appears. Divide in spring only. Fast grower but late to wake up in the spring.
