Weeping Lovegrass (Eragrostis Curvula) 200 seeds (#533)

The clump-forming weeping lovegrass has fine, grassy blades that arch and droop and produces many tall stems of feathery flowers in late summer. This warm-season perennial grass hails from East Africa, so it is tough and tolerant of heat and drought.
Though native to a semi-tropical area, weeping lovegrass is usually fully deciduous but can remain semi-evergreen in fully frost-free climates. Its neat clumps of elegant foliage appear in spring. Airy panicles of lavender-gray flowers bloom in late summer and are followed by tan seeds that tend to self-sow. In autumn, the weeping foliage takes on a yellow or bronze color and dries to warm tan once hit by subfreezing temperatures.
This bold perennial is a lovely accent plant for perennial borders. It looks great planted in large, airy sweeps and pairs well with late-blooming composites. Where not hardy, it can be planted as an annual bedding plant. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)
Like most ornamental grasses, Weeping Love Grass is used extensively as a temporary cover for erosion control purposes. On surface mine spoil, it provides almost immediate cover on steep outer slopes where soil is rather acidic and of low fertility.
