Purple Love Grass

Eragrostis

Eragrostis spectabilis full sun

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-hewn 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 struts 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.

Customer Comment:

“Excellent service from an excellent family owned company. The plants were shipped quickly in secure packaging & are doing great. Digging Dog is such a good business, they personally informed me that some of my order was not hardy for my area. I would highly recommend them.”
