Panicum amarum 'Dewey Blue'

£4.29


Availability : Available

Description :

Clearly bluish foliage and a spectacular fountain effect.

The Panicum amarum species is different from its cousin, Panicum virgatum in:

  • its origin. The species' habitat is the sandy dune soils of the east coast of the United States,
  • its inflorescences are lighter, thinner and grow much higher than the clump of foliage. The whole produces a magnificent fountain-like effect,
  • Its root system is rhizomatous, but can be easily contained in the form of a large clump.

These plants are easy to grow, in whatever kind of soil, and are exceptionally resistant to heat and drought.

Panicum amarum 'Dewey Blue' variety is the result of a natural seedling harvested near the coastal town of Dewey, Delaware (USA). It has a straight habit and clearly bluish foliage and its inflorescences can reach up to 150 cm in height. Hardiness: -20°C.

In the garden, we plant Panicum amarum 'Dewey Blue':

  • as a focus plant, on its own at the back of a bed a silvery foliage, or with white or blue flowering varieties in a composition of cool colours,
  • en masse for a spectacular tall meadow effect or as an unusual plant hedge that sways in the breeze!
  • the plant keeps its shape, without drooping, through the winter You only need prune it down to 10 cm at the very beginning of spring.
