Red Baron Japanese Blood Grass

Imperata cylindrica 'Rubra'


Red Baron is a shorter, less invasive horticultural selection that reportedly rarely flowers, does not set seed and lacks the invasive spreading tendencies attributed to the species. It typically grows much shorter than species plants. The upper part of each blade turns garnet red in summer, with the red color often deepening toward burgundy as the growing season progresses.
