About Panicum: Panicum is a native, clump forming, ornamental grass whose foliage and flower panicle are highly prized for their summer and fall beauty. This effective accent plant can be used alone or in a group. A versatile grass, it’s quite adaptable, with some appreciating more moisture as found along streams, ponds and in water features.
