Ruby silk grass – Eragrostis tef
This annual is great for containers or for cutting; the draping, wavy red plumes add interest and movement to bouquets and containers. Also works well as a dried flower, staying colorful when dried.
Very east to start from seed indoors, available from johnnyseeds.com.
Height – 18 – 24 inches
Prefers full sun to mostly sunny
Long bloom time – mid summer and on
Cats love to play in this, my kittens have all but destroyed my plants!
