This blue Panicum bucks the horticulture trend of shrinking plants by towering around 7’ tall. Even with its considerable height, this grass stays very upright, supporting its late summer heavy flowering performance. Greenish tan flower panicles are held on the top two thirds of the plant and look like they burst out of the clump like water in a fountain. Its attractive blue-green leaves are very wide and strappy. This durable grass will tolerate drought, heat, and wind once established.
