Description
The colourful foliage of this half hardy fountain grass emerges in deep red shades before maturing to a rich shade of burgundy. From mid-summer to autumn, the showy purple flower spikes rise above the arching foliage in a spectacular architectural display. Pennisetum 'Rubrum' makes a lively addition to bedding displays and patio containers. The fluffy seedheads can be also cut to make elegant dried flowers. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.


1 x 9cm potted pennisetum plant (KA1249)

How to Grow
Plant Fountain Grass into garden borders in any fertile, light, well drained garden soil, in full sun.
More Info
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.
