Japanese Blood Grass:
This grass earns its name from its blood-red spikes. It is popular with gardeners for its bold color but beware: any variety of cogon grass without the red tips is highly invasive.
This parasitic plant is native to tropical climates but also appears in temperate areas – including the UK.

It lacks chlorophyll so it needs to feed from other plants (not unlike a vampire) to reproduce.
