Purple lovegrass (Eragrostis spectabilis) is a clump-forming, warm-season grass that produces clouds of tiny, purplish pink blooms in mid- or late summer into early fall; to around 18 inches tall. It’s tremendously photogenic in a meadow or naturalistic planting, but it self-sows freely, so think carefully about adding it to a typical garden border unless you don’t mind weeding out the seedlings. (I’m speaking from personal experience!) US native; these seeds are from wild plants in growing in my meadow in Bucks County, PA. Full sun. Perennial; Zones 4 to 9.
Collected in mid to late September 2023. At least 20 seeds. Be aware that these fully-cleaned seeds are extremely small and won’t look like other grass seeds you may be familiar with. PA ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
