Pennisetum

Fountain Grass

The soft inflorescences take their name from the Latin words penna and seta meaning feather-bristle. This alluring grass is a favorite, distinguished by arching, feathery bottlebrush flowers spilling over a cascading mound of foliage. A warm season grower, Fountain Grass welcomes hot weather and is widely distributed in both tropical and temperate areas.

Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Ginger Love’ (G-0589)

Each 9.25

AVAILABLE SPRING 2020

Adored by birds, floral designers and grass enthusiasts, a plethora of long, thick, dark reddish purple blooms softens ‘Ginger Love’s graceful mounding habit. The substantial bottlebrush-like inflorescences put on a fluffy late summer gala above narrow flowing green blades that signal autumn with warm coppery-bronze hues. This Intrinsic Perennial Gardens’ introduction develops a smaller clump than Pennisetum ‘Red Head’ and can be readily nudged into plantings where space is a premium, lending textural accents to containers, rockeries, mixed borders and water garden peripheries.
