Vibrant Purple Groundcover

Why Purple Fountain Grass?

Purple Fountain Grass packs a one-two punch. First, it delivers purplish, burgundy-red foliage that sets your garden apart. And in addition to its unmatched foliage, it produces fluffy, purple flower spikes in the heat of summer for even more vibrancy.

And this gem of a plant is also a botanical bird feeder. The Purple Fountain's purple-plumed flowers are a natural source of sustenance for birds, making it ideal for adding to your pollinator garden.

    Third season I've ordered this, one of my favorites. In my area it's an annual, but it's worth the bit of work
