Do you know where I could find a plant called "Japanese Blood Grass"? My Mother keeps talking about it and says it is just beautiful when the grass turns red. None of the plant places around this town know what it is. Please help!

I'll bet if you asked for Imperata cylindrica 'rubra', nurserypeople would know what you were talking about. Japanese Blood Grass is a clumping grass with erect stems 1'-2' tall, and the top half is rich blood-red.
