Nothing brings movement and motion to your garden like the flowing plumes of a great grass. Purple Flame Grass (Miscanthus sinensis 'Purpurascens') is a perennial grass that comes back year after year.It's called Flame Grass because of it striking orange-red fall color. With year-round appeal, it is definitely one of the more useful and popular of the taller grasses in use today.It brings such a striking look to your landscape. You'll love it all year-long. The bright spring green blades emerge and grow quickly. They'll start to gain a reddish tinge which gradually develops into deeper red hues as summer progresses.In late summer, red tinged stalks start to appear above the tops of the grass. They'll form tassel-like flowers that turn a creamy white as they mature.Then, in the fall, the foliage turns brilliant orange-red. That's when you'll know why it was named after a blazing fire. The intense fall color contrasts so beautifully with the striking, creamy-white seed plumes.In winter, the foliage settles into a lovely burgundy color with age. This pretty purple continues to offset the white plumes. They'll persist well into winter, providing nice winter interest. You can also cut the plumes and dry them for gorgeous, natural winter flower arrangements indoors.You'll cherish the look of this beautiful, carefree Ornamental Grass.
