Imperata (Cogon Grass)

Imperata cylindrica

Forms an upright clump of green leaves with striking blood-red tips. As the season progresses, the foliage becomes more and more red, glowing nearly all-red in the fall. This grass rarely flowers.

Standing under two feet tall, it is best used as a filler in sunny borders or as a thriller in combination containers. This grass spreads slowly by underground runners and is typically not invasive in northern and eastern climates.

NOTE: This is a summer grass and it will grow taller and fill out in the summer months. The photo is representative of what the grass will look like.
