Panicum amarum 'Dewey Blue'

This smooth, blue tinted grass can grow as tall as 4' and spreads slowly through its rhizome growth forming clumps. It was selected for its glaucous blue color, and graceful fountain habit. The flowers are airy, emerging in the fall, and persisting as a light beige color throughout the winter. Selected and named, by Rick Darke, for the lower Delaware beach town that bears its name. Native along the shores from Louisiana to Connecticut. It is adapted to dry, sterile locations where it plays an important role in stabilizing.
