Purple Flame Grass
Set your garden on fire!
Nothing brings movement and motion to your garden like the flowing stalks of a great grass. Purple Flame Grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Purpurascens') will add dynamism to your landscape like few other plants can. This striking grass gives you year-round beauty.
Purple Flame starts off in the spring as a compact clump of fresh green leaves. It quickly grows to its full summertime height of 3' to 4' tall. The spring green blades start to gain a reddish tinge which gradually develops into deeper red hues as summer progresses.
Then, in the fall, the plant shows why it is named after a blazing fire – it turns brilliant orange-red and shoots up striking creamy white seed plumes. In winter the foliage settles in to a lovely burgundy color. This pretty purple offsets the white plumes and persist well into winter, providing nice winter interest.
Purple Flame Grass is easily grown in average well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. It is tolerant of a wide range of soils from well-drained sandy soils to heavy clay. Use it as an accent plant, a unique screener around your pool, a handsome backdrop to your perennial border or even in your favorite container!
