This tall and colorful grass can add color, height and texture to any native landscape. Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum) is a strong ornamental grass native to North America. The pink and tan-colored "flowers" form in late summer or fall and rise above densely clumped silvery green leaves. This versatile grass can provide winter color and movement in nearly any sunny location of your yard.

Reaching almost 4 feet high and a compact 30 inches around, the clumping Apache Rose Switch Grass adds height and drama to garden beds, rock gardens or borders. The plant is cold hardy to zone 4 and can take the heat of up to zone 9. It's tough during nearly any weather or condition, including drought. Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass also is salt tolerant and deer resistant and the seeds are a great food source for birds in winter.

Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass Care

Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass is an easy-care plant with a medium growth rate. Although it can handle some drought, your switch grass is happiest if you plant it in slightly moist clay or sandy soil and water it regularly during its first year. Enjoy the plant all summer, fall and winter. Then, cut the clump back to ground in late winter or early spring and watch it grow to nearly 4 feet high year after year.

Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass Spacing

Plant several Prairie Winds Apache Rose Switch Grass plants to form a border or screen in your yard or as a stunning backdrop in rock, terrace, native or foundation gardens. Space the plants about 26 to 30 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
