More Information

Description Prairie Rose®' Cheyenne Sky' Switchgrass (Panicum) is a bold beauty that comes in a petite package, filling out just to 3' tall and 1.5' wide! This makes 'Cheyenne Sky' the perfect candidate for container displays where it provides thriller interest for years instead of months. Its show starts in early summer with upright blue-green foliage, and by mid to late summer, the entire plant erupts in red - from foliage to flowers! When planted en masse or as a specimen in the landscape, it is extremely eye-catching and blends well with perennials and shrubs. In winter, foliage can be left standing because it adds unfailing visual interest and value to wildlife as shelter. Details Botanical name: Panicum 'Cheyenne Sky'
Patent #: USPP 23,209
Common name: Red switchgrass
Zone: 4 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 3' x 1.5'
Flower color: Red

Uses: Background, border, cottage gardening, foundation planting, massing, specimen, containers
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in average, medium to moisture, well-drained soils. Prefers sandy loam with good drainage.
Light: Performs best in full sun, may not produce as many flowers in the shade.
Water: Has average water needs and, once established, will tolerate some drought.
Spacing: 1.5 feet apart
Fertilizing: Fertilization isn't necessary, but if desired, a small amount of all purpose garden fertilizer can be applied in spring.
Winterizing: Foliage can be left standing in winter.
Maintenance & pruning:  In late winter, before new growth begins to emerge, cut foliage down to 3 to 4 inches above soil.

Fantastic find

I'd been looking for this particular panicum for months and all of my usual sources couldn't get it. I found it on Great Garden Plants and bought three of them. They were well priced -- competitive with a retail nursery for this particular panicum. The plants arrived quickly and they were healthy and vigorous-looking. While not root bound, their roots had filled in the quart container they arrived in and that tells me that they'd been in that container for a decent amount of time. That's a good thing. I planted them immediately and in the month-and-a-half that they've been in the ground they have doubled in size. I am anxiously awaiting their color change this fall and I cannot wait to see them come back in the spring. I am very happy with this purchase and very happy that I found Great Garden Plants.

Robust grower

Ordered in spring but had to wait til July due to growing conditions for the shipper - but had excellent communications on whether I wanted to wait for it or get a refund. I waited and received a nice but young grass plant. Because my design plans changed while waiting, I half buried the pot on top of my strawberry tower and promptly forgot about it. To my surprise, when I rescued it today (mid-Aug), the roots had happily grown beyond the pot, the seed heads were forming and overall developing into a nice form. It's now planted where it's grassy shape can be admired. Seems bomb-proof to me. Looking forward to the fall colors on it.

One half of the plants (tickseed)I purchase died within the first two weeks. The other half are doing fine.
The entire order of Prairie grass died. I will not be spending any more money from this site

A buy one get one success

One of these grasses was in fairly good shape, the other less so. I found this to be the case in all of the buy one get one plants I ordered. These both lived. But I don’t think I will be doing buy one get one in the future.

So Far So Good

For me, when it comes to grasses and perennials, you can't really judge the performance until the second season. The grass arrived in great condition, the packing was well done and it appears to be thriving and growing as expected. The contrast of the burgundy blades look really nice around the mailbox with my bubblegum vistas and purple daylilies.
