Fountain Grass

Pennisetum alopecuroides, commonly known as Fountain Grass, is a perennial ornamental grass that adds grace and elegance to gardens and landscapes. It forms clumps of arching, narrow leaves. In summer, it produces cylindrical flower spikes that emerge above the foliage, resembling foxtails. The flower spikes start off as cream or light green and gradually transition to a rich tan or burgundy color. Fountain grass thrives in full sun and well-drained soil and is known for its drought tolerance and low maintenance requirements. It is often used in borders, mass plantings, or as a focal point, providing movement and texture to the landscape. Plant with caution as readily self-seeds as does P. setaceum. Grows to approx. 60-90cm H x 60-120cm W.
