Cultivar Notes - 'Purple Fountain Grass'
Gracefully arching, wine-purple foliage topped with burgundy, soft bottlebrush plumes up to 1' long appear in midsummer. Enjoy its winter interest too-the plumes and the leaves will turn a subtle straw color after the first hard freeze.
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.
