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!Nature Hills sells big, healthy clumps that are ready to take off in your garden today!* Adds motion to your garden * Attracts wildlife * Four seasons of beauty.

Smoke and GoldThe Ornamental Fountain Grass ‘Redhead Fountain Grass’, ‘Pennisetum ‘Redhead’, produces very soft plumes that are smoky rose in color, all season long. ‘Red Head’ begins to show its enormous bottlebrush plumes in mid to late summer. The deep purple buds mature to smoky purple plumes. In the fall the leaves turn gold in color. Use this plant in containers, in sunny borders, meadows, rock gardens, and foundation plantings. ‘Red Head’ looks great in late-season containers. The bushy plumes are great as cut flowers if they are cut soon after they emerge. In late fall or early spring cut the foliage back almost to the ground before growth starts in spring. This plant has no serious insect or disease problems and is not usually appealing to deer.* Enormous Purple Plumes All Summer* Golden Foliage in Autumn* Deer Resistant .
