Purple Lovegrass (Eragrostis spectabilis) is a small ornamental grass that grows naturally in sandy fields, along roadsides, and in woodlands. The tiny, loose, reddish-purple flowers appear from late summer to fall forming an attractive, airy cloud of blooms above the grass stems. Purple Lovegrass tolerates hot, dry conditions and can be used as a lawn alternative in areas with light foot traffic, only needing to be mown a few times a season. It attracts butterflies and other native pollinators while the seeds are a source of food for songbirds and small mammals. It is often used as nesting material and cover for smaller animals.
