This remarkable warm season perennial grass forms a clump of upright blue-green foliage that turns a glorious wine-red by late summer; matching wine-red flowers dance just above the foliage; wonderful winter interest; interesting cut flower; deer resistant; drought tolerant once established; very adaptable and versatile.
Wine-red flowers dance just above the foliage
Graceful as an accent and specimen and in borders, containers, mass plantings, modern, patio and water-wise gardens.
