GRASS - FOUNTAIN PURPLE (ANNUAL)

Description

Rubrum’, sometimes commonly called purple or red fountain grass, is a burgundy-red leaved cultivar that is not invasive under any circumstances because, unlike the species, it rarely sets seed. Showy, fluffy, burgundy-purple flowers in bottlebrush-like spikes (to 12” long) top flower stalks that arch upward and outward above the burgundy-red foliage clump in summer. Overall clump appearance is reminiscent of water spraying from a fountain, hence the common name.  Winter hardy to USDA Zones 9-10 it is grown here as AN ANNUAL. Height 3 to 4 feet.
