Panicum virgatum 'Northwind' is a compact, tall clumping grass with a rigidly upright form. Foliage is olive to blue-green, and turns golden yellow in autumn. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other tall grasses. Airy flower panicles produce showy seed heads. Sturdy stems stay upright, even under snow, giving protection to wintering songbirds and winter interest to your garden.
