Renowned plantsman and designer Piet Oudolf brings us a Switchgrass that’s destined to be a classic. He discovered this delightful selection of our native species in a nursery plot in Hummelo, Netherlands. Panicum virgatum ‘Purple Tears’ bears flowering spikes with soft gray color at the top, followed by splendid, purple seed heads. With a manageable height of 4’, its narrow, upright habit make it perfect for a range of landscape applications. It has the same toughness and adaptability you’ll find in other Switchgrass cultivars.

P. virgatum ‘Shenandoah’ is the most likely parent based on appearance and proximity in the growing area. But whereas ‘Shenandoah’ has dark green foliage that develops red-orange color, ‘Purple Tears’ offers a lighter green color that persists across the season. Its purple seed heads, gray-tipped flowering spikes, and graceful habit stood out for Oudolf in his garden.

We are happy to be the first nursery in the U.S. to offer this selection. Capture some of the magic Oudolf and his designs bring to landscapes with this exciting, new Switchgrass.

Purple Tears by Dirt Farmer Dna is an appealing twist on an old preference. It’s the product of breeding Querkle and DelaHaze, making a strain with the fragrance of musty grape and hash, and effects that tend to be distinctly sedating. Purple Tears generally bends toward the Purple Urkle phenotype, although has been understood to pop a DelaHaze plant from time to time with predominantly sativa qualities. The leaves and calyxes take on a deep purple hue while the plant matures, giving Purple Tears a solid visual presentation to go and also its strong purple effects.
