New Panicum virgatum cultivars

ontnative(5b Can/USDA 4)June 20, 2009

I just bought a new Panicum grass 'Cheyenne Sky' which is advertised as being more compact and shorter than most. I am hoping it will fit into my perennial border better than some of the tall ones. There is another BSN (brand spanking new) one on the Canadian market called Panicum 'Blood Brothers' which is a sport of 'Heavy Metal' that has both red and blue leaves on the same plant. The pictures look fantastic. Has anyone out there tried either of these cultivars? Any comments?

Here is a link that might be useful: Panicum 'Blood Brothers'

I planted 'Dallas Blues' this year and they grew beautifully in some fresh triple mix with about 3" of shedded pine mulch.

I have had 'Dallas Blues' for several years now, but it doesn't reach its full potential because I have it growing in a part shade location. I just wish I had a sunnier spot in which to plant it. I also bought 'Ruby Ribbons' two years ago, and it looks like it's going to be a good one, possibly better than 'Blood Brothers'.
