Flame Grass

Miscanthus sinensis 'Purpurascens'

Bloom Season:  Late Summer - Early Fall

Flame grass really stands out in the Fall garden! It starts with rich green foliage in the Summer. Silvery plumes with burgundy tan flowers then appear in late Summer. The plumes are a knockout with the orange-red foliage in the Fall. Flame Grass also provides Winter interest.

It is easy to grow and a great filler plant because of its size and upright growth habit. It is commonly used as a hedge, screen, border, background plants, in mass plantings or as a speciman plant.

Flame Grass needs moist well drained soil. It is attractive to butterflies and birds yet resistant to deer.
