Panicum ‘Frosted Explosion’

Panicum elegans

Extremely productive,  Panicum ‘Frosted Explosion’ is a brilliant foliage filler. This light and airy grass twinkles in the light and gives arrangements texture.

Panicum ‘Frosted Explosion’ is also a handsome garden plant. Its softens the edges of beds and borders and give all important movement and sound as the breeze passes through.

Because seeds are expensive to produce and you would normally expect packets to contain less than 30 seeds each. So here at Swan Cottage we have our own dedicated seed production area collect our own. This enables us to ‘super size’ your packets and give a generous scoop in every order.

How to Grow:
Cover seed lightly to aid germination. Seeds germinate between 16-18C so can appear to take ages if conditions are not right. I usually find by May they all germinate naturally at once if not using a propagator. For an extended harvest I sow in early and again late Spring.
