Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron'

Japanese Blood Grass

This unusual, deciduous perennial has deep crimson-red leaf blades whose colors intensify in fall. Plants spread slowly to form 1-foot-wide clumps. Plant in masses in perennial borders, along ponds and streams or in containers. Use as contrast to coarse-textured plants and those with dark foliage. In hot summer areas, they do best in partial shade. In cooler areas, they need full sun for best foliage color. Start by division in early spring. Cut back branches with dead leaves to ground in winter or early spring.
