(Japanese blood grass)
Family Poaceae
Originating from Japan

A slowly spreading, clump-forming grass from Japan with chartreuse green, upright ribbon-like blades with red tips.
As the season progresses the colour flows down the leaf, almost to the base, until by mid summer each plant is a vertical clump of intense blood red.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun. Cut back in spring.
In very frost prone areas mulch roots with straw.

Eventual mature plant size :
Height 40cm
Spread 30cm
