If you’re a fan of bright colours and grasses, Imperata cylindrical ‘Rubra’ combines both into one, producing an unusual and dramatic grass. The leaves are green at the base, with red tips that appear more intense as summer progresses into autumn, when they begin to shine like a jewel and light up the garden when it’s starting to look a little past its best. Height & Spread: 50cm (20”).
