Common Name: “Switch Grass”

(Switch Grass) Neither wind or rain can knock down Panicum ‘Dust Devil’ PPAF. It is truly the devil of all Panicums. Switch Grass 'Dust Devil' PPAF grows well under less than ideal garden conditions. The blue-green to green foliage forms an upright, dense clump that flushes with a hint of deep purplish red in the fall. Wine purple flower panicles appear in late summer. 'Dust Devil' PPAF with it dense and durable foliage provides an important cover for birds during the coldest days of winter. This Switch Grass makes an excellent addition to Proven Winners® Perennials.
