- Unique CharactersticsPurple Love Grass: You'll fall for love grass when panicles of reddish purple flowers rise above the foliage in late summer. Eragrostis spectabilis is a warm season bunch grass with narrow leaves arranged somewhat randomly in 10" clumps. Attractive throughout the growing season, the light green foliage turns stunning bronze-red in autumn. This grass needs full sun and will thrive in poor, sandy soil or any soil with good drainage. It prefers even moisture but can be quite drought tolerant. Love grass will slowly spread by rhizomes to a width of about 3' and may self seed. Use it alone in mass plantings or intermingle the 24" inflorescences with Rudbeckia fulgida, Ruellia humilis, and Eurybia divaricata. - Mt. Cuba Center Prairie Dropseed: According to wild Niel Dibol, of Prairie Nursery, Westfield, WI, it is "often considered to be the most handsome of the prairie grasses. It makes a well defined and very distinctive border." Fine textured, deep green foliage with lovely, light and airy flowers to 2 1/2" in September and October. Flowers have a slight fragrance similar to coriander. Often has glowing pumpkin orange fall color. Good drought tolerance. Gilded Lace Coreopsis: A selection from the 2015 Mt. Cuba Coreopsis Trials.
