Panicum virgatum Cape Breeze

Panicum virgatum 'Cape Breeze' PP24895

Switchgrass

'Cape Breeze' Switch Grass has clean green foliage which retains its color into late October, before turning an attractive tan throughout the winter.  The airy tan inflorescences float above the upright compact plants, and serve as an important winter food source for birds.  Panicum 'Cape Breeze' is an excellent native grass for its tolerance of sterile soils and salty conditions.  Developed and introduced by North Creek Nurseries.
