Switch Grass # 1 Cb

Introducing Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum), a resilient and versatile native grass species that adds dynamic beauty to the landscape throughout the growing season. With its striking foliage and elegant flowering panicles, Switch Grass captivates the eye and provides essential ecological benefits to your garden environment.

Ecological Benefits:

  • Switch Grass serves as a valuable habitat and food source for a variety of wildlife, including birds, small mammals, and insects. Its dense foliage provides shelter and nesting sites for birds, while the seeds attract songbirds and other seed-eating animals, contributing to local biodiversity.
  • Switch Grass plays a role in carbon sequestration, capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide and storing it in its biomass and root systems. By incorporating Switch Grass into your landscape, you contribute to carbon mitigation efforts and support climate resilience.

Its deep roots enable it to access moisture deep within the soil, reducing the need for supplemental irrigation and conserving water resources.
