Description

Panicum Virgatum- Panic Grass

Panicum Virgatum- Panic Grass or switchgrass, consists of lush foliage topped by soft panicles. In the fall, those panicles often turn darker shades of brown or bronze but are ordinarily yellow or tan. This type of grass is ideal for providing a tall screen for privacy. Additionally, some wildlife feeds on Panicum Virgatum, finding it an excellent source of nourishment. Some cattle farms plant Panicum Virgatum for the cows to feed on, though it can't provide sustenance for other types of livestock. In seeking out natural ways to protect hillsides from erosion, tests have found that this type of grass has a stabilizing effect on slopes. The impact it has on erosion makes Panicum Virgatum a useful resource in environmental conservation efforts. It can be planted to protect an area naturally and won't alter the ecosystem.

It can grow in frigid climates, so weather conditions have little effect on growth patterns.

Panicum Virgatum- Panic Grass

Even in winter months, the grass will stand tall and upright, making its use for privacy particularly attractive. The foliage of panic grass has a red tint to it and can grow as high as 70-150 cm (28-60"), depending on environmental conditions. Ideal factors for increasing Panicum Virgatum are areas with free sun exposure, but where the soil is warm and moist. While it can also grow in the dry land, this is not the ideal condition and may result in stunted growth. The panic grass is common to open forest areas and prairies, particularly in eastern Canada, the east and central parts of the United States, and as far south as Central America. Once planted, Panicum Virgatum will start growing in the early spring. Its roots will grow deep, extending several feet into the soil. The stems will be stiff and round with the grass growing in clusters of columns.

This helps the grass bounce back into an upright position after inclement weather conditions bend the stems.

The panic grass is a resilient form of foliage that can thrive in various environments.
