Fountain Grass 'Red Head' 3 Gallon

Fountain Grass 'Red Head' 3 Gallon

Pennisetum alopecuroides

Fountain Grass, also known as Pennisetum, is a family producing compact, dense, mounded varieties that are popular, reliable, and easily recognized by their cat-tail or bottle brush-like blooms that hover above finely-textured, arching foliage. They perform well in sunny containers, small spaces, and in groups or as specimens. 'Red Head' has a similar habit to 'Karley Rose' developing a dense mound of gracefully arching leaves that begin deep green in summer, turning gold in the fall, and fading into winter, but they differ when in flower. 'Red Head' develops its inflorescence earlier and they are much larger, 8-10" long and 1-3" wide, dark red plumes that fade to rose and then wheat color in late fall and winter. Combine with Perovskia, black-eyed Susans and fall blooming Sedum. Plant in well-drained, average to poor soil. Water well after planting; maintain 1" of water, once a week the first year. Use slow release fertilizer in spring or at planting. Mulch 1-2" to suppress weeds and retain soil moisture. In general, cut ornamental grasses down as low as possible in late winter. Divide in spring when necessary.
