     Switchgrass is a beautiful tall grass with bluish summer hues and purplish fall flower panicles that look like they're hovering like a cloud.  Its blades turn yellow-orange in fall.


     Switchgrass makes a great hedge or screen, and it can work in a garden as a tall accent.


     With its High pollinator values, Switchgrass also provides nesting and structure for bees, and it is a larval host to Leonard's Skipper.  Small mammals seek it out as a winter food source.


    Switchgrass also responds well to early spring pruning.
