RubyCrystalsL300

Melinus nerviglumis ‘Savannah’ or Rhynchelytrum nerviglume ‘Savannah’ is a winner of the 1998 Plant Select Awards. Ruby Grass is a short grass, growing only 8 to 12 inches high, with blue-green foliage that turns purple-red in the fall. Ruby Grass is a real show stopper in the summer when it produces beautiful 3-4 inch iridescent ruby-pink blooms that sit about a foot above the foliage and are breathtaking blowing in the wind. These “Ruby Crystals” acquire a silvery appearance as they age extending the show of this grass. This grass is great for use as borders, in mixed perennial beds, as well as in mixed containers.
