Just put these in in early July. Although not hardy here in Zone 6, will give them a try as they are somewhat protected.
Common name: Rose Fountain Grass, Purple Fountain Grass
They are lovely. I am really getting to love this species. Must grow some more.
Behind the rail is the flowering midnight broom and barberry bust to the right. I brought these inside last winter and they are doing great again this year. They make fabulous backdrops in dried arrangements!
