Switchgrass is a Natural Looking Perennial Grass

Switchgrass will look great in a natural area; It will do well in moist and wet soil conditions. This grass is a perennial, so it will grow year after year.

Switchgrass (scientific name Panicum virgatum) is a bunchgrass native to North America, found in the wild from the southern parts of Canada to Mexico. Having been adopted as an ornamental plant for gardens, it goes great with many arrangements and serves practical and aesthetic functions.

Switchgrass Grows Well with Other Grasses or Alone in a Pot

In gardens and landscaping arrangements, Switchgrass is a popular choice for filling space surrounded by flowers or even as a focal point all on its own. It works well with other grasses or green plants and can grow fine in pots.

While it will start growing in late spring, it can withstand any weather condition and remains upright even in winter. However, individual plants will have different tolerance levels for these conditions and grow to different heights and levels of growth depending on your particular plant.

Due to their deep roots reaching up to several feet into the ground, Switchgrass is an excellent choice to prevent soil erosion. Farmers use it as a source of hay for their cattle and other livestock; scientists have been looking into its uses as a biofuel.

Switchgrass changes colors with the seasons.

The color of Switchgrass will change with the seasons. It usually appears light green with pink flower spikes in spring, darkening as it reaches the summer months. By fall, red and yellow tips formed in late summer will have begun to overtake the plant entirely, giving the grass a lovely orange coloration. By winter, it will become a dull beige before the process enters the next year again.

Switchgrass prefers to grow in full sunlight but will tolerate partial shade (though the chance of it flopping over will increase). It can grow to be highly tall regardless of soil conditions. However, if it becomes too high, it may fall over, though its durability allows it to return to standing upright if the excess weight is clipped off.
