Panic Grass

Panic Grass (Panicum violaceum) - If you enjoy adding ornamental grasses to your indoor arrangements, grow Panic Grass seeds, and add this lovely annual grass to your cutting garden collection. Sometimes referred to as Violet Panic Grass, this annual is very attractive with purplish-green, pendulous flower-heads. The wispy, draping flowers are very useful for the flower arranger, and are often seen in arrangements.

Start Panicum violaceum seeds indoors in the late winter for transplanting out once frost danger has passed. The germination for Panic Grass seeds can be erratic, so many gardeners prefer starting the ornamental grass seeds indoors and creating little plugs. For those who prefer direct sowing, prepare a seedbed that receives full sun, and place the seeds in fine soil. Lightly cover the Violet Panic Grass seeds with soil and keep them moist until germination occurs. This ornamental grass is a millet, and birds enjoy the dried seeds.
