Panicum virgatum ‘Heavy Metal’
This is totally different in both leaf colour and outline to the other Panicums that we’ve listed in previous catalogues. Panicum ‘Heavy Metal’ makes clumps of stiff upright stems clothed in blue leaves. The autumn flowers, held above the stems, are bluish at first and then turn to oat gold. It grows well in the dry garden as well as beds which are watered more regularly. Sun. 100cm x 80cm.
