    How to take care of Imperata Red Baron

    Suitable plant for borders or in the rock garden, and especially when mass planted. Plant in a sunny to partially shaded position in any well drained soil. Although this prefers moist soil, plants require good drainage, especially in winter.

    Enrich the planting site with organic matter prior to planting. Water well after planting and for a few weeks until the plant is established. Mulch grasses with organic material in the autumn to protect roots and shoots from freezing.

    Grasses which die back completely in winter can be rejuvenated by cutting the entire plant back to about 10cm in early spring. Remove any all-green shoots if they appear. Clumps may be easily divided in the spring.

    Seldom produces flowers. Its slow to establish but once it does its worth it. Foliage will die back each year and return in spring.

    Great value on plants that would cost a great deal more at a garden centre. I’ll keep on buying from gardens4you.
