Noted for its outstanding red color in fall, Panicum Rotstrahlbusch has been called “best of the reds”. Foliage is tinged with red all growing season. Seedheads are pinkish burgundy. Foliage and seed heads eventually turn beige/tan for winter interest.
Panicum 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.
