The Etouffee Fountain Grass grows true to its name. Beginning densely at the base in green, and blooming upright, before falling subtly over as if it’s flowing water. This beautiful grass is mounding in nature and makes a wonderful filler in borders and in any landscape. It has long stems, and blooms a nice tan and pink bottlebrush flower. The blooms last from Spring, all the way until Fall. 

This perennial grass is low maintenance and ornamental in nature. It’s deer resistant, so it can be planted outside of fencing without threat of deer consumption. The pink bottlebrush flowers and fluffy nature of this grass make it attractive to songbirds. It’s versatile, and not only can it be an addition to the landscape, but it could be used as filler in bouquets to add texture and charm. 

Etouffee Fountain Grass Care

This perennial grass can survive in hardiness zones five through nine. It prefers full to partial sun. Like most grasses, it requires an average amount of water but is drought tolerant once established. It would be beneficial, after a dry period, to give this grass a nice drink of water if the plant isn’t established yet. The Etouffee Fountain Grass will tolerante most soil types. 

Perhaps a wonderful quality of this grass, it won’t reseed! This means that when the grass is planted as a clump, it will stay that way. Trimming should be done at the beginning of the season, cut down to the base. 

Etouffee Fountain Grass Spacing

The Etouffee Fountain Grass can grow 30 to 36 inches tall. Considering its fountain characteristics, it should be spaced 30 to 36 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
