PURPLE/RED FOUNTAIN GRASS Pennisetum
A stand-out perennial plant with vibrant bronze-red foliage, and fluffy plumes that tower over the foliage, and blow gracefully in the wind. The effect of the bronze-red foliage provides a remarkable focal point both in the garden, and in planters.
Red Fountain Grass is a hybrid plant, which means that seedlings may differ slightly from the original plant. I expect that plants will be mainly red, with occasional lighter red s or green plants. Please feel free to contact us and let us know the results of your seeds!
