Red Fountain Grass plant

Red Fountain Grass is a beautiful ornamental grass that is known for its striking reddish-purple foliage and graceful, fountain-like growth habit. It is a relatively easy plant to care for, making it a popular choice for gardeners of all levels.

Native to Africa and the Middle East, Red Fountain Grass typically grows to a height of around 3 to 5 feet (90 to 150 cm) tall and has narrow, arching leaves that can range in color from green to dark maroon. In the summer, the plant produces attractive reddish-purple plumes that rise above the foliage, adding an extra element of interest.

This grass is drought-tolerant and prefers well-draining soil. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade and is relatively low-maintenance, requiring only occasional watering and fertilization. Red Fountain Grass is commonly used in garden beds, borders, and containers, and can also be grown as a focal point in a landscape.

  1. Watering: Red Fountain Grass is drought-tolerant and does not require frequent watering. Water the plant deeply once a week during periods of drought or dry weather, and avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.
  2. Soil: Red Fountain Grass prefers well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. If your soil is heavy or poorly-draining, consider adding organic matter, such as compost or peat moss, to improve drainage.
  3. Fertilizing: Fertilize Red Fountain Grass once a month during the growing season with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Avoid using high-nitrogen fertilizers, as these can promote excessive foliage growth at the expense of flower production.
  4. Pruning: Cut back the previous year's growth in early spring to encourage new growth and maintain a neat, tidy appearance. If the plant becomes too large or overgrown, it can be divided in the spring.
  5. Pests and Diseases: Red Fountain Grass is generally resistant to pests and diseases, but it may occasionally be affected by spider mites or fungal diseases. Treat any infestations or infections promptly with an appropriate insecticide or fungicide.
