Is this imperata Red Baron?

I bought several of these, planted out but although two have grown significantly more than the other they don't look right to me...

Any comments please?  I don't want to go back to the online nursery if they just are taking their time turning red...


The one that looks ok is the small one on the right in the first picture.

    Bah....  Ok thanks, another complaint coming up then... :-(

    Surprised tbh - they were from Woottens.  Only ordered them because the previous three I had ordered from Jacksons were little more than plug plants in a 1l pot.  The one in the middle is the only one of those three that survived.

    I've mailed Woottens - they are usually very good at replying positively so let's see what happens.

    Woottens have already replied and are sending out replacements.  Another example of their great 'no questions asked' customer service.

    They suggested the foliage looks like panicum - guess I'll google it to see if it's something worth keeping...

    I have Red Baron but the red is very faded. Does it improve with age? 

    Pancium looks good!
