An extremely showy and popular selection of Fountain Grass, seen frequently as a focal point in containers and annual plantings. Plants form an upright clump of deep burgundy-purple leaves, bearing arching bottlebrush flowers that change from red to tan. Although not winter hardy in most regions, this may be treated as an annual or wintered indoors. Clumps are easily divided in early spring, still getting large and flowering the same year. Widely used in municipal plantings.
