Panic Grass (Panicum virgatum)


Panic Grass: Panicum virgatum, or panic grass, is a profuse, emerald green, United States native ornamental grass species that will flourish in almost every USDA plant growing zone. TN Nursery customers love this grass for its lively green color. They also love the height--it grows almost four feet high and the tall, red, feathery spike.


Panic grass wants a full-sun location but will tolerate partial sunshine. It is a native prairie grass that requires about an inch of water weekly; however, it can also survive short drought spells.


Panicum virgatum is hardy and resilient-- it is deer-resistant, disease-resistant, and pets-resistant.

Where TN Nursery Customers Plant Panic Grass


Panic grass is lovely in many garden settings. Here are some ways our customers put it to use in their landscape:


  •      Natural area: This decorative grass adds height, color, and visual interest to a full-sun or partially sunny natural area.
  •      Meadow or prairie land restoration: This sun-lover will thrive in the full sunshine of open prairies.
  •      Water garden: Panic grass does not mind water as long as the roots can dry between soakings.
  •      On the bank of a small pond, lake, or stream
  •      Urban garden: This low-maintenance plant is perfect for a city environment.
  •      Pollinator garden: Panic grass attracts butterflies, moths, bees, and birds.

Panic Grass Adds Vibrant Green Color

Panicum virgatum adds a beautiful, lovely green color anywhere you plant it. The species grows an average of about four feet tall. However, it can grow taller in the most fertile environments. To control the height, some gardeners mow it.


The blades are glossy, bright green, flat, and spear-shaped with a blunted tip. It often folds over gracefully as it gets taller.


The tall, red to burgundy flowers are feathery and fluffy--it is a lovely sight.
