Purple leaves with reddish-purple plumes that emerge in June. Great contrast in landscape. Tolerates poor soils but needs regular irrigation.
With wide, dark purple leaves, this dramatic looking grass may be a good substitute for the less winter-hardy Purple Fountain Grass. Although it does not bloom in Central Texas, it comes back strong from the roots in the spring.
Similar to 'Hameln' but a foot taller with plumes. The pink-tinted plumes appear July-Sept. With cold weather the grass turns orange-red.
