Enhance your sunny garden border with the bold and beautiful vertical presence of ornamental grass. We are pleased to introduce two switchgrasses (Panicum varigatum), which are both drought tolerant and deer resistant. ‘Northwind’ is an upright, thick bladed grass on a sturdy stock, allowing it to stand strong during our windy autumns and winters. It leaves emerge steel blue in the spring and as fall approaches will take on a golden yellow color (see photo). September will bring on showy flower panicles that rise above the leaves. Growing 4-6’ tall this is a great option to use as a screen. ‘Northwind’ was picked as the Perennial of the Year for 2014 for its outstanding garden performance.
