01 Apr Miscanthus ‘Purpurascens’
One of the most useful of the the tall grasses, flame grass is highly valued for it’s stunning fall colours and showy flowers. Tiny reddish-tinged flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into creamy white plumes by fall atop redish-orange foliage. Works well planted in mass or in a boarder. Don’t leave this beauty out of your garden!
