Cultivar Notes - 'Red Head'
It begins to show its huge, bottlebrush plumes in mid to late summer. Deep purple buds mature to smoky purple plumes that can measure a whopping 3" wide by 8-10" long! The combination of foliage and flower remains attractive for several months.
Genus Notes - Pennisetum
These lovely grasses are favorites, distinguished by arching, feathery bottle-brush flowers spilling over a cascading mound of foliage.
