Quick Overview:

This Japanese forest grass slowly matures into a soft flowing mound. The thin rich green blades will start to develop red on the tips in late summer and gradually gain more red through the fall. In full fall color this grass is a bright blend of deep red, burnt orange and deep gold. The billowy form moves with the slightest breeze and is a great for adding movement to the garden.  Beni-kaze translates as red wind.

Description

This low mounding grass will grow best in light to open shade. Avoid hot sunny locations or the tips can burn. The red tones appear earlier and are brighter with some sun. Provide a location with well-drained soil, although this adaptable plant will tolerate sand. Provide regular watering during dry weather, for sandy sites it may need water more frequently. In late fall once the grass starts to look weathered it can be cut to the ground.
