Fountain Grass is one of the most popular grasses. This selection forms an upright mound of arching green leaves, bearing bottlebrush spikes of silvery-white flowers that turn to buff or tan as they dry. Most 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 bright golden-yellow in the fall. Clumps may be easily divided in spring. Old foliage should be cut to the ground in March. Drought tolerant once established. ‘Hameln’ refers to the German town of Hamelin, most famous for the folk tale of the Pied Piper.
