Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
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").

Take care not to overwater as Pennisetum plants may rot in over-wet soils. Although plants are hardy, they will benefit from the added protection of a dry mulch of bark or straw to protect the crown of the plant over the winter. Once you have enjoyed the autumn and winter interest of this plant, you should cut back any dead foliage and faded flowers in the spring.
Plant Fountain Grass into garden borders in any fertile, light, well drained garden soil, in full sun.
