Common Name: Switch Grass, Ornamental Grass

A nativar perfect for the late summer landscape! The seedheads on this moderately sized grass billow over the top of the habit. Wide, steel colored leaves densely pack the robust habit. It is closest in size to 'Apache Rose', but differs with tan seedheads and a wider habit.

Switch grass gets its name from the peaceful swishing sound it makes when blowing in the wind. All parts of this grass are very sturdy, and will remain standing thru winter unless snows are heavy. This provides important cover for birds during the coldest days of winter. This grass is very versatile from a design standpoint; it is effective as a specimen, in masses, for screening, alongside ponds or streams, or even in large containers.
