Eragrostis spectabalis-Purple Love Grass

Propagating Eragrostis or Purple Love Grass either by dividing the clumps or transplanting the rhizomes that spread from the parent. Purple Love Grass can become invasive because it is drought resistant and is native to Arkansas. It reaches a height of 1' and its pink/purple blooms cover the plant in July to August and its green leaves turn red in the fall so prune back in the spring before new growth is spurred on. It does well in well drained sandy soils in full sun and is deer resistant. Ornamental grasses are restricted from OR & ID and butterflies are attracted to the plant.
