1 Live Plant – Flame Grass Perennial Plants
When Miscanthus Sinensis “Purpurascens” first emerges in early spring, it’s easy to mistake for any old green grass. It’s when summer comes along that this plant really begins to live up to its red hot name. As the summer heat reaches its peak, this 5 foot tall grass turns a brilliant orange-red color that’s sure to liven up the garden. In the weeks following the initial burst of color, the grass fades to a regal reddish-purple, and the brightly-colored seed heads persist all the way from early fall to the winter months. Regardless of the time of year, this perennial has something spectacular to offer your garden or landscape design.
