  Panicum virgatum

Panicum virgatum var. 'Prairie Sky'

Switch Grass or Reed Switch Grass is a warm-season native grass. Use in mass where its fine-textured flowers and seed heads will produce a cloud like effect. Dense, upright growth habit; 3-8' when in flower. Green to blue-green foliage; takes on a beige color for winter. The light, airy flower panicles vary in color from green to pink. Bloom in late July or early August. Foliage and flowers are effective in both fresh and dried arrangements. Best grown in full sun and fertile soil. Good in wet or dry soils; the more moisture, the taller it will grow, but will tolerate dry soils. Tolerates some shade; too much shade reduce the intense fall color. Floppy habit if grown in medium to heavy shade.
