The One-Plant ContainersIf you’re looking for a more minimalist or contemporary look that still has the wow factor, try Japanese blood grass (Imperata cylindrica ‘Rubra’, zones 5 to 9). Plant a mass of Japanese blood grass in a single container or cluster of containers for a dramatic burst of vertical blades that transition from bright green at the base to fiery (or blood) red at the tips. Japanese blood grass is a deciduous grass that prefers moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade.The straight species of Imperata cylindrica is on the Federal Noxious Weeds list, most commonly invading tropical and subtropical regions. ‘Rubra’, or ‘Red Baron’, is listed as noninvasive, but it’s still best to be aware of where it’s planted. Pots are a good option, since they keep it fully contained.
