Miscanthus sinensis ‘Purpurascense’ (Eulalia)


8 in stock



2 Gallon Pot. ‘Purpurascens’, commonly called flame grass, is noted for its superior orange-red fall color. It is a compact, upright, warm season, clump-forming ornamental grass which typically grows to 3-4′ (infrequently to 5′) tall. Features medium green blades (1/2″ wide) with a reddish tinge which gradually develop further reddish hues as summer progresses, eventually turning a brilliant orange-red in fall. Foliage gradually darkens to an attractive burgundy by winter. Tiny reddish-tinged flowers appear in tassel-like inflorescences above the foliage in late summer, gradually turning into creamy white plumes by fall as the seeds mature.
