36-48" tall (48-60" with plumes) x 18-24" wide. Fast
growing 'Shenandoah' Red Switchgrass is one of the all-time favorite ornamental
grasses. This native hybrid grass can be grown as a mass planting or dotted
throughout the garden or foundation bed for texture and movement. Panicum grows
best in full sun, and can tolerate poor soils. Mix and match with other native
perennials, such as Rudbeckia, Echinacea, and Phlox. Leave to stand during the
winter for habitat and visual interest, and cut back in early spring.
