Family: Poaceae
Cultural Code: HT what's this?

Wide deeply arching blades form a highly decorative specimen from which emerge "Jet Black Foxtails" (purple mahogany seed plumes creating constant show on into the first frosts)--still the most popular grass at the nursery as it achieves its most splendid show during that late late summer period when so many other garden vamps have lost their vivid punch. Waist high if planted in rich moist soil; but typically much shorter, depending on soil & moisture levels. This is the incredible show-off on the pathways to the sales area here at the nursery that lights up the area from summer on through the first freezes. {Please note: the dramatic purple African fountain grass species are offered in the TROPICAL plant section}

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
