Truly remarkable Heavy Metal Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum Heavy Metal) has an upright, columnar growth habit that makes it ideal for adding rhythm and structure to plantings. As tough-sounding as its name, this native plant cultivar doesn't flop after heavy rains, likes moist soil but tolerates drought and overwinters in style. A garden should stimulate all the senses, and this grass provides music for your ears with its rustling foliage. Attractive, pink-tinged flowers ripen into golden seed heads, and though dormant, the plant maintains its upright form throughout the winter.
