A striking grass that has stunning appeal in the garden.  It is a winter dormant plant but come spring it pops up with bright green blades of grass-like foliage that turn cranberry red in summer and progresses to a dark burgundy colour by autumn before going dormant again in winter.

Blood Grass as it is also known will easily and reasonably quickly form a dense clump of around 40cm in height and by about the same in width and spreads by underground rhizomes. It proves itself best in full sun but will also cope with part shade.  It thrives in any average soil but likes it well drained and is an extremely drought tolerant plant once established.  

This lovely grass requires very little care other than a layer of much in areas that get colder winters and you can remove any dead foliage in spring.  Bloodgrass looks fantastic as an edging plant or massed as a ground cover. Plants can be easily split to provide new plants once established.
