     Purple Love Grass, with its purplish-pink inflorescences rising above blue-green foliage, makes an outstanding addition to a perennial garden.  It is a larval host to the Zabulon Skipper and provides nesting for native bees.

 

     Its mid-summer blooms look like a haze of purple floating above the foliage, turning bronzy-red in fall.

 

     This grass appreciates elbow room, and it likes poor, dry soil.  It also looks great planted en masse for a glorious, airy purple display.
