If you're a gardener who enjoys the blues, then you have to try this selection of our native switchgrass, prized for its powdery blue foliage. Found in Wisconsin along a railroad track by Roger Gettig, it is similar in growth habit to P. 'Heavy Metal', but taller with a less rigid habit, and much more powdery blue. In late summer, billowing plumes of amber brown top the clump.
