Is it Blood Grass or is it Pennisetum Rubrum? Help!
I am new to gardening, and even newer to ornamental grasses. I bought 6 pots of unmarked (shame on me) grasses at a benefit auction. To me they looked like blood grass. After I bought them someone told me they were pennisetum. I have been searching Gardenweb and the internet to find pictures and facts to compare these two grasses with what I have. I just can't tell what they are! My grasses are green at the base and gradually turn red toward the tip. I pulled them out of the pot and don't see any rhizomes, just roots. Are there any telltale signs that will indicate which grass I have? Thanks in advance for your help.
