Ruby Stiletto Wood Rush (Luzula 'Ruby Stiletto') will add year round interest with its changing foliage colours. The full attractive mounds are bluish-green in the spring and summer but in the colder months turn a stunning ruby hue. Under full sun exposure and poor nutrtion, the leaves will redden even more! Airy clusters of creamy white flowers emerge above the slender grass in last spring and early summer. This very hardy variety was collected from the mountains of British Columbia and makes a great addition to borders, groundcover, and containers.
