  • Eragrostis, Purple Love Grass is rated 1.8462 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from purple love grass I bought three plants last year. They did well but never produced the "stunning and unique pink cloud." This year, they appear to be dead.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pathetic & Sad... I wanted this plant so I ordered it during a sale. I got the plant and was completely shocked at how teeny tiny it was!! Way too much money on such a small plant!! In any event it died within a few days. I had no idea the plants were so small and am very disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This is the prettiest grass of all! This year was the first time I planted it and it turned out better than I imagined, with a profusion of delicate lacy seedheads. While not pink, still georgeous!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from pink love grass Well not so much any color of pink yet just planted early summer. This is a beautiful full vibrant plant that is a rich green with little white buds on it, Hope it will turn pink. Planted with fresh good soil, used only organic fertilizer on all my new baby plants. Smells really bad but plants love it. Watered daily, All my plants from Burpee did well. Hope this turns pink as I was counting on this for the pink color in my new flower bed zone 5.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space filler. I ordered several of these grasses to be fillers for a new flower bed. It does the job! I got these early in the Spring and they arrived healthly and a lot bigger than other items I ordered from another company.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad grass Unfortunately this love grass never turned purple last season. I thought that it would be at least growing and green by now, but after I trimmed it back it remained brown and small, and hasnt grown at all this spring yet. I am hoping summer will help it to get going, but I have a feeling this was a dud, unfortunately...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Like the other reviews I bought three of these this spring and I watered regularly, fertilized, etc. My plants have produced no color at all and look like weeds. These will definitely not be in my yard for another growing season.
