Heavy Metal Switchgrass
Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal'
Channeling raw, untamed energy, the Heavy Metal Switchgrass stands with metallic blue-gray blades. Its sturdy posture and unique hue make it a representation of nature's wild and industrial side, a blend of strength and beauty.
Prefers semi-moist to wet soils. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Tolerates mild drought, once established. Cut old foliage back and apply a general purpose fertilizer just before new shoots appear in late winter to early spring.
