Purple Fountain Grass is a popular ornamental grass that is colorful all year. It has the look of a pod of grass, but its purple and green slender blades show that it is something entirely different. It blooms from midsummer through the fall a tall plume of fuzzy rose-pink flowers that are perfect in any flower arrangement. It can thrive in a container or as a landscape piece. The Rubrum is a drought tolerant warm-season perennial. It produces best in a location with full sun and well-drained soil.
