Panicum virgatum 'Squaw' is a colourful, deciduous, perennial grass, originally native to the Americas. It has attractive, narrow, mid-green leaves in an upright form in spring/summer, which take on wonderful purple hues in autumn and occasionally reds and oranges too. The feathery flower sprays produced from summer onwards are brown with a hint of pink which contrast with the foliage when green and complement it when turning to its autumnal colours.
A clump-forming grass to around 1m in height and spread, Pancium virgatum 'Squaw' will grow in any well-drained soil and in a full sun position. It is a fully hardy plant in the UK tolerating freezing conditions well. Being a deciduous perennial, it will die back somewhat in winter but when the spring comes, simply remove any dead foliage or spent flower stems to tidy the plant and maintain.
Panicum virgatum 'Squaw' makes a colourful addition to herbaceous beds and borders, softens hard edges and brings movement and texture to the garden. It will also grow well in a pot of container on the patio.
To ensure a healthy and tidy plant, simply remove any dead or dying foliage in early spring and cut back the spent flower blooms and stems.
