Panicum virgatum 'Nosferatu' PBR

Cultivar denomination: 'Nosferatu' PBR

A Polish variety distinguished by an attractive color of leaves already in the initial stage of growth, which take shades of blue and intensely purple-burgundy. This millet has a compact, upright habit. It does not lie down. In July, open, purple inflorescences appear above the clump of leaves, which turn brown-cream after they fade. They add lightness to the clump. This millet reaches about 70-80 cm in height. Prefers average garden soils, moderately moist, sunny positions, resistant to frost. Perfect for planting in prairie beds, in naturalistic compositions with perennials.
