Pennisetum alopecuroides (Large Plant)

Chinese fountain grass

Pennisetum alopecuroides is a highly decorative ornamental grass, also known as Fountain Grass, and is a plant which gives almost all year round interest in the garden. It is a low-maintenance plant, which quickly forms a clump, so is ideal for filling gaps in perennial and shrub borders. The grassy foliage is neat, but stays quite inconspicuous until the flower heads appear during late summer. But, once they appear, they really dazzle, with spikelet's looking much like a squirrel's tail! Leave the decorative seedheads on your Fountain Grass plants into the autumn. Height: 150cm (59"). Spread: 120cm (47").
