Native to North America, this perennial, deciduous grass creates a stunning architectural display from early summer through until winter when its dried stems and flowers stand pale gold against grey skies.
'Heavy Metal' is a particularly upright form and at 1 m in height slightly shorter than most, with narrow green leaves liberally tinged with dark steely grey.
The seedheads appear in late summer as a diffuse cloud of reddish purple spikelets. Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal' is a very attractive grass suitable for mixed borders.
