Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Pennisetum glaucum 'Blackjack' is ideal for creating an impressive centrepiece in a summer flower bed. The foliage turns from green to an interesting purple/bronze as plants mature over summer and upright, dark, feathery flower heads appear on sturdy stems, adding interest. This tall Ornamental Millet is also perfect for creating height in borders and patio planters. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 20cm (10").

Feed and water regularly until fully established.
Pot up plugs and grow them on in warm frost free conditions for transplanting into borders later on. Water sparingly until plugs are fully rooted into their containers. When plug plants are well grown acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant fountain grass in any moist well drained soil in full sun.
