This colorful ornamental grass with purple foliage and flowers stands up well to heat, humidity and drought! Purple Fountain Grass is easy to grow in most any soil in sun to light shade. The plant can require some supplemental water during dry spells and a light dose of balanced fertilizer. Its striking foliage and foxtail plumes show up well when surrounded by contrasting plants. Cut back dead foliage to the ground in Fall or Spring. Grown here at Creekside Nursery in a 1 and 3 gallon pot!
