Grass - Dust Devil
Lavender Flowers on Hardy Grass
Switch Grass Panicum Dust Devil, Panicum virgatum 'Dust Devil' , is truly the devil of all Panicums, and if you are looking for a hardy and sturdy switch grass, this one is it!
This switch grass is quite durable and grows well under stressful conditions. Dust Devil grass will remain standing through winter unless snows are very heavy.
The blue-green to green foliage forms an upright, dense clump, and when the season turns to fall, it shows off a hint of deep purple red.
Lavender pink flower panicles appear in late summer. The flowers turn tan as they age.
Dust Devil provides shelter for birds and wildlife during the coldest days of winter.
Switch grass gets its name from the soft swishing sound it makes when swaying in the wind. A very versatile grass, Dust Devil adds an architectural design to any landscape.
It is effective as a specimen, in masses, alongside ponds or even in a large container.
Colorful and hardy, a great combination!
