Description
The colourful foliage of this half hardy fountain grass emerges with bold stripes of red, pink and green, 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 'Fireworks' 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").

How to Grow
Pot up plants and grow them on in warm frost free conditions for transplanting into beds, borders and containers later on. Water sparingly until pennisetum plants are fully rooted into their containers. When they are well grown, and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant fountain grass in moist, light, well drained soil in full sun.
More Info
Water when necessary to prevent the soil from drying out. Take care not to overwater as Pennisetum will rot in wet soils. Pennisetum setaceum 'Fireworks' is often grown as an annual. However, where plants are grown in containers they may be moved to a frost free position over winter. Apply a dry mulch such as bark or straw to protect the crown of the plant. Cut back dead foliage in spring.
