Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) 'Prairie Sky'

Panicum virgatum ‘Prairie Sky’ is much admired for its steely blue foliage. Mature plants are statuesque and crowned with airy summer flower panicles. In late evening, the tiny silvery spikelets seem to dance above the foliage. Winter leaves and seeds develop a soothing sandy brown color. This handsome grass thrives in prairie type settings or in sunny gardens with moist, average or dry soils.
