Panicum virgatum ‘Dallas Blues’ Blue Switchgrass

Panicum virgatum ‘Dallas Blues’ PP#11202
Blue Switchgrass

This stunning Switchgrass stands out in the landscape with its striking physical attributes: blue, three-quarter-inch-wide leaves and billowy pink-colored, seed heads.

It is a native cultivar that makes an excellent substitution for large exotic grasses.

Switchgrasses are known for being drought tolerant and undemanding about soil. They also provide food and shelter for birds and wildlife.

Leave this grass in the  winter months to aid in shelter and winter interest , then in spring  cut back before new growth appears.

This is a  patented native cultivar  that was discovered by Ken and Linda Smith of Smith’s Garden in Ohio.

Dallas Blues is a  warm season grass , that is a  beautiful bright blue foliage grass.

Grows to a height 5 feet, 6 feet in flower, sun, dry, plume flowers in  July.

Plant in Zones 4-10

Origin: North America, Central America

I love this grass for it’s color most of all, adds great interest to your beds .

Happy Gardening
