Add dramatic, year-round foliage to your landscape

Looking to add a bold statement to your landscape? Flame Grass, also known as Miscanthus Purpurascens or Purple Maiden Grass, is the perfect burst of color to fill a sparse landscape or to add as a focal point in your beds or containers.

This grass emerges green in spring, but as late summer arrives, its foliage turns to vibrant hues of red, orange, and coral pink topped with silvery feather plumes that persist well into winter.

To ensure the brightest possible colors, plant where it has exposure to full sunlight in the summer and fall months. Growing upwards, this 4’ tall, clump forming grass also makes a great privacy screen in your backyard.

Because of it’s high adaptability, Flame Grass does well in normal or sandy soil, and even soil containing clay, making it an admirable accent for a variety of garden types—from naturalized areas and ponds to cottage gardens.

Flame Grass is even prized for creating stunning dried floral arrangements that add a decorative element to your home, or at an event. Ready to spice up your fall foliage? Get this eye-catching ornamental grass now!

Planting & Care

Planting: Since Flame Grass can reach a 3-4 ft. spread, plant at least 20 inches apart at an even distance to avoid overcrowding. Make sure it’s planted somewhere with access to full-sun or partial-shade.

Watering: Water well the first year to get established, then this plant can thrive in a variety of environments, especially soil that’s well-drained. If you live in an area where it rains often, you may not even need to water at all.

Flame grass

We planted this in the spring. Can't wait to see it in the fall as it continues to grow.
