Product Description

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.

Plant Information

Top Tips

These ornamental grasses are deciduous, cut back stems close to ground level from late February through to the end of March before new growth starts.

Care Guide

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • When planting a number of perennials, arrange them on the surface so you can see how they will look before planting.
  • Individually knock out each plant from its container. Look at the roots if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the rootball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the rootball.
    The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil.
  • Clumps can be dug up and divided in autumn or spring to give you more plants.

I purchased 6 blood red grasses and they arrived well packaged in a plastic case in a cardboard box. They will look fantastic once they have established into my garden
