Features and uses:
Panicum virgatum Rehbraun
is an ornamental gramineae belonging to the Poaceae family, native to North America. Greg Vivai cultivates it in a pot, has an erect attitude and usually its height varies from 1 to 1.20 mt.
The leaves form a vertical tuft
, they are long and filiform, bright green, but with the advancement of autumn they color red with purple reflections
and in the garden give a fantastic color note.
The inflorescence of Panicum virg. Rehbraun
appears in the summer and persists throughout the fall; is formed by small flowers
that form a soft brown cloud, with orange / bronze reflections.
This ornamental grass
, thanks to its characteristics, is perfect for making private gardens, even small in size, and is very good for public parks or roadbeds
as it has great resistance to drought and cold
, it does not need fertilizer and not even antiparasitic treatments. It only requires pruning in the solar year, beginning of March, to eliminate dry stubble. It's fair to say that stubble trees, during the winter, give a wonderful landscape when they cover with ice.
