Description

Details

(Blue Switch Grass) Panicum 'Heavy Metal' produces metallic blue leaves forming a rigid upright clump that makes a stately impression. In late summer, a cloud of delicate pinkish-burgundy seed panicles is displayed above the foliage. The seed panicles persist well into winter for an extended season of interest. 'Heavy Metal' presents fall foliage that is bright yellow, which fades to beige in winter.
