Panicum virgatum 'Northwind'
Panicum virgatum 'Northwind'
Common Name: switchgrass
Wow! An unequivocally upright steel blue panicum selected by Roy Diblik of Northwind Perennial Farm in Springfield, WI. It was the only one of our 13 trial varieties still standing after Hurricane Floyd! And the drought of '99? No problem. Wide, thick leaf blades are a bit more substantial than those of the other blues. A golden yellow color in the fall.
Height: 4-5 Feet
Spread: 2-3 Feet
USDA Hardiness Zone: 2-9
