Totem Pole Switch Grass

PANICUM virgatum PRAIRIE WINDS® Totem Pole PP29951 (Totem Pole Switch Grass) A mental image of a totem pole recalls a tall, narrow, majestic structure – the exact imagery to apply to this new ornamental grass! ‘Totem Pole’ forms a very upright column of steel blue foliage and powdery blue stems. In early fall, the top of the clump explodes with golden seed panicles. The narrow base of the plant makes it an ideal candidate for small spaces in the garden that need height and vertical structure.

A Proven Winner grass, it prefers rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part sun.
