Switchgrass is a warm-season grass, which means that it doesn't grow until the soil has really warmed up. But apart from wanting warmth, this is a seriously tough grass that tolerates poor, dry soils and is deer resistant. My local rabbits have also ignored it so far, but that may be because they are too busy eating my Heuchera.

Garden 2013 Grass: 'Shenandoah; Switchgrass September brings a change in the air — it’s almost tangible. Cooler evenings have us hunting for our favorite sweater again, heavy morning dew reveals the cobwebs spun overnight by busy spiders, and an indefinable fragrance tells us that fall has arrived. Our gardens also begin to mellow as the sun arcs lower in the sky, casting a warmer light and softer shadows. While many flowers are putting on their last hurrah, grasses are just coming into their peak. One of my favorites is the switchgrass ‘Shenandoah’ (Panicum virgatum ‘Shenandoah’).

Switchgrass Panicum virgatum 'Shenandoah' (USDA zones: 4 to 9). Switchgrass is a warm-season grass, which means that it doesn't grow until the soil has really warmed up. But apart from wanting warmth, this is a seriously tough grass that tolerates poor, dry soils and is deer resistant. By June the dusky green blades are tipped with burgundy, the color intensifying as fall approaches. Be sure to plant it where you can enjoy the light shining through the foliage, a truly magical effect. TIPS: Plant any time that the soil is warm — usually from June through September. Many pot-grown grasses become root bound, so loosen up the root ball with your fingers before planting in average, well-drained soil and full sun. No fertilizer or special soil amendments are needed. Water regularly during its first season.
