PLANT CHARACTERISTICS
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.
Genus Notes - Pennisetum
These lovely grasses are favorites, distinguished by arching, feathery bottle-brush flowers spilling over a cascading mound of foliage.
