NORTHWIND SWITCH GRASS
Northwind is an attractive, upright cultivar of our native Switch Grass. Foliage is blue-green, and turns golden-yellow in the fall. Airy, plume-like flowerheads bloom in late summer. Stems hold up well in winter, adding interest to the landscape. Northwind is hardy and adaptable, and can tolerate drought and clay soils once established. This is a great native alternative for Karl Foerster and Maiden Grasses.
