I have really been enjoying the life cycle of this purple fountain grass. This is the first time I have grown it and I will certainly look for more next year. The grass is a lovely purple color and when the plumes first appear, they, too are purple. As they mature, they turn a brown color and all these little seeds appear. Has anyone saved the seeds and successfully grown the grass the next year?
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
