Cultivar Notes - 'Foxtrot'
This grass forms a dense clump of foliage as tall as it is wide. The narrow, green leaves turn a stunning golden color in the fall. In late summer, smoky-rose, bottlebrush-like plumes measuring 6-8 inches or longer are produced.
Series Notes - Warm Season Grasses
Warm season grasses grow most actively during the warmer months, then flower in late summer or fall. Most go completely dormant in winter. Warm season grasses include: Andropogon, Calamagrostis brachytricha, Carex, Cortaderia, Erianthus, Hakonechloa, Miscanthus, Panicum, Pennisetum, Schizachyrium, and Sporobolus.
Genus Notes - Pennisetum
These lovely grasses are favorites, distinguished by arching, feathery bottle-brush flowers spilling over a cascading mound of foliage.
