Product Description

Fountain Grass (Pennisetum Alopecuroides) - One of the most popular ornamental grasses is Fountain Grass. Fountain Grass seeds are easy to grow, and this variety produces a 32 inch tall mound of narrow green foliage. In the late summer bottle brush-like plumes of pale brown appear. The name Fountain Grass comes from the arching inflorescences that look like water pouring from a fountain. A mass grouping of these ornamental grasses is very striking. The plumes of Pennisetum alopecuroides Fountain Grass make excellent cut flowers and can be preserved. How To Grow Fountain Grass From Ornamental Grass Seed: Start Fountain Grass seeds indoors in the late winter. Use pots or trays filled with moist seed starting mix. Sow the ornamental grass seeds on the moist soil and lightly cover. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into a larger pot for continued growing. Harden the ornamental grass plants off for 10 days or more before transplanting outside once frost danger has passed.
