Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Dark, burgundy foliage arches to form a neat clump, making an attractive feature in summer borders. From July, a profusion of long, fluffy, purple-red flower spikes rise above the glossy foliage. Pennisetum x advena 'Rubrum' is a fast growing variety that makes a spectacular display, contrasting beautifully with other grasses and perennials.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until fully established. In autumn, move to a frost free position such as a heated greenhouse to protect the plant from cold, wet winter conditions. 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.
