Description

Prairie Sky’ is a deciduous perennial grass to 1.5m in height with flat, narrow lance-shaped, blue-green leaves from spring to summer, turning orange-yellow in autumn. Drooping branched panicles of small blue-green spikelets are borne in early autumn,

Switch Grass was an important component of the Tall-grass Prairie that once covered much of the Great Plains. This outstanding selection forms an arching clump of steel-blue leaves, bearing airy heads of tiny green flowers in late summer. Fall colour is bright butter-gold, fading to tan. Usually attractive in the garden all winter long. Flowers are good for cutting, fresh or dried. Trim back to the ground in early spring. Clumps are easily divided in spring. Drought tolerant once established.
