Japanese Blood Grass Plant - Red Baron

Imperata cylindrica Rubra

A stunning, spiky-looking grass with lime green leaves that turn progressively through burgundy red to claret-blood red in late summer and into autumn. Ideal for borders or patio containers, it shows good drought tolerance once established. Height 30-50cm (12-20"); spread 30cm (12"). Middle of border variety. Supplied in a 9cm pot.

Ideal for bringing a contemporary flavour to borders or containers, these tough, easy-to-grow plants will thrive in most soils. Stunning when planted in groups and perfect for flanking paths or edging flower beds. The summer flower spikes are an added bonus.

Supplied as large, well established potted plants that can be planted straight into their final positions in borders or patio containers.

Adrian Bloom says . . . The Japanese Blood Grass has to be one of the most dramatic of ornamental grasses, but to get the best out of it in growth and colour it needs a sunny position where not too dry as roots are quite shallow, spreading but seldom invasive. Slender flexible blades slowly reach 30-45cm. during spring and summer growth, and equally gradually the leaves from the tips become suffused with crimson red until late summer and early autumn when they seem to be on fire. In spring shoots appear late - consider as I have done at Bressingham, creating a river of red with this amazing grass.
