Panicum 'Heavy Metal' blooming?
I purchased three of these from SRG last fall. Today I noticed they are blooming. What is this? I had to do a double take. Each plant has about 5 or six blooms starting and they are only about two and a half feet tall.
My six P. 'Northwind' and six 'Rotstahlbusch' from SRG are not blooming. All three types are putting out healthy, new leaf growth as expected.
I have never had a Panicum do this before when I grew it a few years ago. We did have an unseasonably dry/warm early spring and then it got very cool and now its hot and humid. I kept all the new grasses watered during the drought from January through mid May.
