Adorable fluffy goodness! This small, evergreen grass from South Africa makes the softest, prettiest blooms of any grass we grow! They’re 4-6”, soft, ruby-pink and very pleasing for all of you tactile types! This grass blooms through the summer and then turns red in the Fall. The rest of the year, the foliage is a soft grey-green. Clumps grow to 2’ high and wide so it should be a winning addition to perennial borders and smaller gardens. Hardy to 20 degrees F, this grass can also withstand periodic drought, though it will look better if it receives average water. Prefers well drained soil for perennial success.
