Growing Zones:

Fountain grass or Pennisetum is a warm-season grass with arching stems and feathery flower plumes. This grass provides a fine, soft texture in the landscape and can be used as ground cover or an edging plant when planted en masse. The bottlebrush plumes appear in late summer and can be left to dry on the plant for winter interest and food for birds. This grass is popular for combining with flowering plants in container arrangements.
