Totem Pole Switch Grass - Front Bed - Spring 2021
I first spotted something called a Totem Pole grass at Hinsdale Nursery earlier this year. It was billed as a grass that can get to six feet tall. I was intrigued. So, when I saw this Prairie Winds Totem Pole Switch Grass at the Morton Arboretum Spring sale, I knew I had to buy one. (I know, I know...I shouldn't ever buy ONE of anything. But, I broke *that* rule for this grass due to the size and sun requirement. )
In the photo below, you can see this grass in the nursery container in a spot in the bed kind of tucked behind the tulips and the Norway Maple tree and kind of straight out from the corner of our screened porch.
Here, below, is the front/back of the tag:
A sturdy, durable ornamental grass that withstands adverse weather conditions. Grey-green leaves form a strictly upright column of steel blue foliage. Golden seed heads in fall.
