Lovegrass

There are two types of this native ornamental grass, Elliot's lovegrass and purple lovegrass. Both grow in clumps, with stiff leaves and a fine cloud of wispy flowers. Lovegrass thrives in full sun and sandy, poor soil. Planted in masses, it gives texture and interest to your landscape, and helps control erosion on sloping ground.
