Ornamental grasses are essential components of many landscapes. We offer a wide variety of both native and non-native grasses, as well as grass-like plants such as rushes, sedges, and liriope. Grasses are generally very low maintenance plants, usually only requiring that they be cut back once a year to remove old foliage, usually in late winter or very early spring.
Grasses should be planted while they are actively growing. Evergreen types may be planted any time, but plants that go winter dormant should be planted before they turn brown in the fall.
(If you are a wholesale customer, please note that we cannot ship Imperata 'Red Baron' outside of Virginia.)
Common Name: Crinkled Hair Grass
This is a cool season grass that tolerates light shade. Its very thin, arching, wiry dark green blades form dense tussocks. The flower stems that arise in summer bear airy panicles of purple to bronze flowers that turn gold as the seed ripens.
