Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal'

Panicum virgatum 'Heavy Metal' (Panicum virgatum)

Grasses in borders have become very popular. This upright one needs well-drained soil in full sun and reaches three feet

I like grasses in the border, but I fear the stipa tenuissima I planted is going to be everywhere next year - I can see seeds all over the soil.........

Yes, some are a bit free with their seeds. I wanted something about three feet high among some penstemons and reckoned I wanted three plants. I went to a nursery a few weeks back and they had just three left of this one - which I took to be an omen :-)
