    Panic Grass Overview

    This is a large genus containing around 269 species of annual or perennial, evergreen or deciduous grasses in the Poaceae family, native to tropical and temperate parts of the world. They have tall clumps of flat, narrow, lanceolate leaves and panicles of flower spikelets in Summer and Autumn. Some species are cultivated as crop plants, for example, broomtail millet, used for birdseed and for those on a gluten-free diet. They are also widely grown as ornamental grasses and there are many cultivars available, grown for their tall airy panicles and diverse leaf colours that turn in the Autumn. Commonly known as Panic Grass or Panicgrass
