Purple Love Grass
Eragrostis spectabilis (G-0563)
PREORDER FOR APRIL 2023
A widespread North American resident, this irresistible warm season bunch grass gives you good reason to love it. The low, loosely arranged narrow light green blades launch tall thin flower stalks that cushion a lovely fine textured cloud of reddish purple seed heads in late summer. Bronze and burgundy-streaked autumn foliage extends the show. A butterfly’s friend and a gardener’s delight, Eragrostis spectabilis asks for good drainage and possesses unfaltering mettle, miraculously abiding air pollution and black walnuts as well as dry, poor, sandy or gravel-strewn sites.
Size: 18" – 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 5.
