Looking for a large, robust perennial bunchgrass to add to your lawn or garden? Consider Tridens flavus, commonly known as Purpletop, Red Top, Greasegrass, or Tall Redtop. Native to North America, this grass produces purple seeds that are oily to the touch, leading to its unique names. Tridens flavus reproduces by seed and tillers and is often found in man-made habitats, such as hay meadows and lawns. While it may be confused with Johnson grass, Tridens flavus is easily distinguished by its short, hairy ligule. It is a beautiful addition to open woods and old fields, as it produces drooping branches with widely spaced, reddish-purple spikelets. Give your landscape a pop of color with Tridens flavus.
