Panicum (Switch Grass) virgatum 'Northwind' (Northwind Switch Grass)

Home »

Interesting blue-green foliage color and stiff, upright habit. Nice yellow fall color. Late to begin growth in the spring, but when it starts will rapidly catch up. Good for massing and cutting. Attractive narrow plumes top the plant in September. Adds great fall and winter interest with its bright off-season foliage and fluffy seed heads. Does not bend or collapse in rough winter weather. Very adaptable and tolerant of various growing conditions.
