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.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Purple Fountain in an area with full sun (about 6 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil. Once you've chosen your location, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your plant's root ball, place your plant, backfill the soil and water to settle the roots.
You can also plant your grass in a pot. If you choose to do so, select a container that's about twice as large as your plant's shipped container (and ensure it has drainage holes), use organic soil mix, place your plant, and fill the pot with soil, leaving about 2 inches free at the top. Finally, water your newly-potted plant to settle the soil.
2. Watering: When the top of the soil feels dry down to about 2 or 3 inches, water your Purple Fountain.
Other than regular watering if your area does not receive consistent rainfall, Purple Grass requires very little additional maintenance.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

I can’t express just how beautiful the purple grass is… free and flowing in the wind. I’ve always admired the purple grass from the first time I saw it and I said, I wanted to get some for my home.
Purple Fountain Grass
They have only been in the ground for a month, but they are doing well. They arrived in excellent condition.
What was promised
The plants arrived quickly and on the expected day. They looked health considering the transplanting. Now 60 days later they are flowering and looking great. I will be a repeat buyer.
