Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum) Switch grass is best known by its wide open, airy seed heads. It forms dense stands, and can be aggressive. It is commonly used for C.R.E.P ground (farm acres placed in the federal government's Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program).

Like other deep-rooted prairie plants, its roots help build soil, stem erosion and filter out agricultural chemicals before they reach waterways.
