Tall Switch Grass
Panicum are robust plants with great resistance to heat, drought, cold and wind.
These indispensable grasses give structure to contemporary gardens and are appreciated for their great appearance even in winter and the colour of their foliage which varies from blue to bright red.
Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues' was selected in 2000 by Ken and Linda Smith (Change of Scenery Nursery, Columbus, Ohio, USA) and is an exceptional cultivar given the intensity of its truly blue foliage and the profusion of its flowers which a Miscanthus can only look at in envy!
In the garden we plant Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues' on its own as a focus plant or in mass to create a hedge or a backdrop for a bed.
Or you can use it as a star plant for a winter scene.
Only cut back at the beginning of spring as the inflorescences are a great food source for garden birds.
Cultivation: in the sun in ordinary soil. A good cut flower for arrangements.
