1 Gal. Dwarf Fountain Grass - Widely Adaptable Compact Grass, Blooms a Vivid Pinkish-Purple Color
In growing seasons, Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass emerges in a soft, plushy mound that harkens to water droplets in a fountain, which is how this lovely ornamental received its common name. The narrow, shamrock-green blades arch outward and lend the grass its signature shapely form. In late summer, thick bottle-brush flower spikes appear in silver and rose tones. Dwarf Fountain Grass is the perfect accent with color and texture that stands alone and subtly complements neighboring companion plants. Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass, botanical name Pennisetum alopecuroides Hameln, is widely adaptable, easily flourishing in USDA zones 4-11 in either full sun or shade. It reaches a height and spread of 18 in. to 30 in. The foliage is a medium green that turns a coppery tan in autumn, with colorful pinkish-white flower spikes. Its soft feathery texture is often overlooked, yet never goes unappreciated by gardeners after planting this compact ornamental. The balance of contrasting texture and color makes Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass an ideal variety to complement all other plants and fill open ground spaces in a garden.
