    Two things to consider

    Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum' is a cultivar of something not so purple and may not seed reliably purple


    It's a bit late to start them and expect much this year

    Agreewith Nut, too late in year. Start next Spring, with heat, they are not hardy. When they are large enough to go outside, remember to bring them back in, during Autumn.They will not survive in a cold greenhouse [ in Sheffield anyway ], so either indoors, or a heated greenhouse.

    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
