Red Baron Imperata (Japanese Blood Grass)
Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron'
Japanese Blood Grass forms an upright clump of green leaves with striking blood red tips. As the season progresses, the foliage becomes more and more red, glowing nearly all-red in the fall. This grass rarely flowers. Standing under two feet tall, it is best used as a filler in sunny borders or as a thriller in combination containers.
