Eragrostis spectabilis (Purple Love Grass)


A short clumping warm season grass, Purple Love Grass can be a charming border plant. It prefers prairie and savanna situations with dry, sandy or gravel soils. Airy purple seed heads appear in late August, giving it a cloudlike appearance. As seeds mature, the flower stems loosen and detach, like tumbleweed. Eragrostis comes from the Greek eros (love) and agrostis (grass).
