Purple Love Grass

Bright rose-red spikelets look as if they are glowing when backlit by a warm setting sun. Light green foliage turns a rich bronze color in fall with a slight purple-blue tint. Makes quite a show when planted en masse in an open meadow or a naturalized garden setting. Forms dense 12-18" clumps and will slowly spread by rhizomes. Heat and drought tolerant. Reaches 18-24" tall. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Ships in 2" pot. Zones 5-9. Eragrostis spectabilis Deer tend to avoid.
