Red Brome (Bromus rubens) - Give your color pots a lovely addition this year by growing Red Brome grass seed. This annual grows quickly, and produces pink flower panicles that grow fairly upright and not drooping. Red Brome Bromus rubens is an exotic species that comes from southern Europe. It is not native to the United States. Because it grows so easily and can be somewhat invasive, many gardeners limit this ornamental grass seed to pots and containers only.
How To Grow Ornamental Brome Grass From Seed: This ornamental grass seed can be planted directly outdoors in the early spring. Prepare a weed free seedbed, loosen the soil and firm in down. Lightly cover the Bromegrass seed with soil and keep it moist until germination.
