Pennisetum glaucum | Purple Majesty
Whilst this grass is an annual, it is so useful in borders, containers and in fact anywhere else where you want some drama in your garden. The young plant starts out with green leaves in spring and as it ages they turn the most stunning dark mahogany purple during summer and grow to quite a sizeable clump. Most of all I adore the dark purple seed head spikes that stand tall above the leaves. The seeds are adored by birds. It is fast growing, drought tolerant and loves a full sun position. An excellent cut flower that dries particularly well and still holds its lovely velvety purple colour.
These do not last long - so be quick if you want one as numbers are limited
