Andropogon appendiculatus is a beautiful tufted grass This hardy grass has beautiful colours of red, green, and bronze at this time of year. The summer-borne flowers are almost purple.
This grass looks great all year round and can be used in a grassland garden or in a mixed border as it is not aggressive.
But, as with all grasses, it does need to be pruned back and cleaned at the end of winter.
Plant in sun or semi-shade and water regularly.
