Not to be missed

We owe the 'Shenandoah' variety to the German botanist Hans Simon. This ornamental switch grass was bred from 'Hänse Herms' and is probably the selection with the greatest autumnal interest. It turns from green in late spring, to red in summer and finally burgundy in autumn.

Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah' forms superb upright tufts with foliage that turns almost entirely burgundy at the end of summer. The tufts remain straight and upright in the winter.

We recommend planting it with Sedum x matrona, Sedum 'Autumn Joy', or the all new Helenium 'Bruno', or with Echinacea 'Rubinstein' or for mass background plantings.

Height: 120 cm.

Grow in the sun in ordinary soil, which can be poor and dry.

Tolerates heavy, damp soils and can even withstand temporary flooding (1-3 weeks) !

Planting distance: 100 cm to 120 cm. Hardiness: - 25 ° C

On a patio Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah' can be useful to create a screen. You would need to plant in in large containers of more than 50 litres.
