Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah'
Common Name: Switch Grass Family: Poaceae (The Grass Family)
One of our favourite grasses at the nursery for the last two years, 'Shenandoah' has strongly upright steely blue foliage throughout the season with hints of burgundy red. The airy flowers create a great cloud of pink and blue atop the columnar grass in summer. Then in fall the burgundy tints deepen and spread throughout the foliage creating a great late summer and fall display.
Prairies and in openings and savannas throughout the eastern United States. It is one of the co-dominant grass species of the original tallgrass prairie.
