  • Comments: Adding ornamental grasses to the landscape gives it a more dynamic look and architectural appeal. Treat your property to a visual upgrade with Flame Grass. In late summer, its large swathes of gracefully arching blades appear green and are gently tinged with purple. As autumn approaches, it turns red for a completely different look for the upcoming season. Flame Grass gives a charming, delicate look to naturalized areas, and makes an ideal privacy screen when planted in groups. Silky panicles of silvery-beige emerge in late summer.
