Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until fully established. In autumn, move Pennisetum 'Rubrum' to a frost free position such as a heated greenhouse to protect the plant from cold, wet winter conditions. Pennisetum 'Hameln' and 'Hameln Gold' are perfectly hardy and will happily survive the winter outdoors. In spring, remove dead foliage and divide clumps every third year to maintain their vigour.
Grow fountain grass in any moist well drained soil. Choose a position in full sun.
