  Deer Screen Switchgrass Blend

A mixture of three different varieties of switchgrass, two medium kinds.  The tallest switchgrass will grow 6 to 8 foot tall.

The purpose of native grass planting is to establish a cover of native grasses that will enhance the landscape. Once you get switchgrass established it will provide cover 15 to 20 years.

Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) is a vigorous warm season, native perennial grass which can be planted for many purposes including livestock grazing, wildlife cover.  Switchgrass begins growth in late spring and continues through the summer if moisture is available. It grows 3 to 6 feet in small to large sodded clumps that spread slowly from  rhizomes. The leaves have a bluish cast and can attain a length of 2 feet. Under native conditions it is usually found along creeks, streams and protected areas, but establishment and productivity has been best in fields with loam to sandy loam soils.  Plant 10 to 15 pounds per acre.
