Description

Switchgrass is a Natural Looking Perennial Grass 

It will be very natural looking. It will also look great in a natural area; It will even do well in moist and wet soil conditions. This grass is a perennial, so that it will grow year after year.

Switchgrass (scientific name Panicum virgatum) is a species of 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 kinds of arrangements and serves both 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 when paired with other grasses or green plants and can grow just fine in pots.

While it won't start growing until late spring, it can withstand virtually any kind of weather conditions and remains upright even in the dead of winter. However, individual plants will have different levels of tolerance for these conditions and will grow to different heights and levels of growth depending on your particular plant.

Due to their deep roots that can reach 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.

Switchgrass is used for deer repellent

Switchgrass, also known as thatch grass, tall panic grass, or Wobsqua grass, is a perennial species of bunchgrass found in most North America, from Canada to Mexico. It is a relatively invasive, weedy species that thrive optimally in meadow and prairie settings that receive total sun exposure. Switchgrass has many uses that range from soil conservation, such as game cover, biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (a serious climate issue in our modern society), phytoremediation, forage production, and, most recently, a biomass component for ethanol and butanol.

Switchgrass grows in a clustered dispersion pattern, with dense clumps of the plants being observed. The switchgrass leaves average a height of about three to six feet and display a linear, parallel vein distribution; Switchgrass requires moderate water for growth and can thrive in dry and moist soil compositions. This species also has a wide range of decorative applications for homeowners, including groundcover, deer repellent, and nesting and cover for wildlife. 

Switchgrass attracts various birds and insects, namely butterflies

Switchgrass attracts various birds and insects, namely butterflies, to the area and is heavily pollinated by the wind. Although many people do not desire switchgrass in their gardens due to its invasive nature, it has several different ecological uses. It promotes biodiversity in a garden setting or any environmental setting for that matter.

Switchgrass can grow in a wide range of environments, including northern Canada and the temperate environments of the United States and Mexico. Growth most often begins in the late Spring months and continues until the cold weather becomes too severe for optimal growth. The leaves of switchgrass turn from bright green color in the Spring and Summer months to a pale yellow in the Fall, making it an adaptive ornamental decoration for any yard at any season of the year.
