Crank up the heat in the garden with this fiery deciduous grass.
Slowly growing into large clumps, Red Baron boasts 50cm long leaves that are green near the base, turning more intensively red towards its tips. Equally at home in semi-shade as it is full sun, this grass is great for making a statement in pots or can be grown alongside perennials or other grasses in beds. If you really want to make an impact, plant it en masse, in swathes or as an edging plant alongside a path.
Easy to look after, water it occasionally, especially in pots, and cut plants to ground level when they start to wither later in the year or before new growth appears in spring.
Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant out.
