Purple Love grass hardiness

Boop(5/6)October 3, 2006

I grew this beauty from seed this year in a container and am hoping that if I plant it in the groung it will come back for me. Whats my chances? Zone 5a according to Jellitos. Well drained, full sun spot with lots of snow cover in winter.

Keeping my fingers crossed, I collected seed just in case

Greenlee and Darke both say zone 5. Unless you collected all the seeds, you'll have volunteers next year.

Hardy here in my garden for many years. Lots of lovely self-sown seedlings too. I love my love grass!
