Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Red Head’


Fountain Grass

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 8.300.030


Fountain Grass is one of the most popular grasses. This selection forms a large mound of arching green leaves. Soft smoky-pink coloured bottlebrush flower spikes appear in mid to late summer, turning to buff as they dry. One of the earliest-flowering selections. Very effective when mass planted, but also useful as a specimen accent in the garden or in containers. Flowers are excellent for cutting, fresh or dried. Plants usually remain attractive well into the winter, the leaves turning shades of gold to orange then finally pale tan. Old foliage should be cut to the ground in early spring. Drought tolerant once established. Selected by Brent Horvath of Intrinsic Perennials in Illinois.
