Variegated Purple Fountain Grass is an ornamental grass that adds visual interest to gardens and landscapes. The plant features green and white striped leaves, with burgundy-coloured flowers that bloom in the summer and fall. It is drought-tolerant and low-maintenance, making it a popular choice for gardeners who want to add a pop of colour to their outdoor spaces without having to devote a lot of time and effort to upkeep. The grass can be used in a variety of settings, including borders, containers, and mass plantings.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during hot and dry periods. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings to avoid overwatering
  • Maintenance: Monitor for pests and diseases and treat promptly as needed
  • Pruning: Cut back in late winter or early spring to encourage new growth and maintain a compact shape
  • (Optional):Fertilize using a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring and mid-summer. Avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to excessive foliage growth and decreased blooming.
