Heavy metal is a switch grass cultivar that features metallic-blue foliage and a columnar form. It is a clump-forming, warm-season grass that typically grows to 3' tall and 1-2' wide. Metallic-blue leaves turn yellow in the fall, fading to tan-beige in winter. Foliage is topped in mid-summer by finely textured, pink-tinged, branched flower panicles that hover over the foliage like an air cloud. Hardy in zones 5-9.
