Melica altissima 'Atropurpurea'

Siberian melic

A charming grass with dark purple almost black, shiny, spikelets that fade to a pale purple in autumn. 

Black cornflowers, golden calendula and this grass make a perfect combination. 

Trouble free, it's a small specimen that works well in mixed plantings. 

Does have a tendency to seed itself freely.
