Product Description

ORNAMENTAL GRASSES: Grasses provide structure and texture to your garden, offering many shapes, heights and colors. Most will “bloom’ with attractive seed fronds that move with the breeze. Commonly known as Japanese Bloodgrass, 'Red Baron' is a clump-forming, ornamental grass that features erect, thin blades. The upper half of each blade turns a garnet red in summer with the red colour often deepening toward burgundy as the growing season progresses. This grass remains attractive until late autumn and then goes dormant in winter. It is useful in borders, rock gardens or as a colourful accent. Its foliage colour can be superb when backlit by early morning or late day sun. 'Red Baron' is also good for patio containers or tubs. Hardy in zones 5-9. Plant in sun or partial shade. Grows 12-24 inches tall. Plant 12 inches apart.

    Japanese blood grass

    I received a leafed out, great looking starter plant and it already has a few burgandy leaves on it. I don't see the brilliant red just yet. May be in the summer, it might turn red. bu overall, I'm happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it.
