Eragrostis spectabilis, otherwise known as 'purple love grass', is a standout variety with light green foliage that blends into striking red through autumn. It also produces lovely, delicate red-purple flowers in late summer which fade to bronze with the foliage in autumn. A great feature within the garden border but also good as part of a cut flower display. Height and spread 80cm.
|Plant in a hole large enough to firmly hold the roots.
|Well drained fertile soil.
