Cultivar Notes - 'Purpurascens'
From early to midseason, the leaves are a pleasant grey-green. In the fall, they turn a brilliant reddish orange, hence the name 'Flame Grass'. The seed heads begin to appear in late summer with magenta hues.
Genus Notes - Miscanthus
These large Grasses add texture to fresh and dried arrangements. All have winter beauty to equal their summer charm, and they are not the least bit picky about soil.
Series Notes - Warm Season Grasses
Warm season grasses grow most actively during the warmer months, then flower in late summer or fall. Most go completely dormant in winter. Warm season grasses include: Andropogon, Calamagrostis brachytricha, Carex, Cortaderia, Erianthus, Hakonechloa, Miscanthus, Panicum, Pennisetum, Schizachyrium, and Sporobolus.
