Description Plant Care
Pennisetum setaceum 'Tender Fountain Grass' (Tender Fountain Grass). Although not winter hardy in northern areas, this is an outstanding, durable, very showy ornamental grass with green foliage that forms a graceful, arching, slightly upright mound. Nodding, 12 inch long flower spikes are an attractive purplish-pink color and are excellent as cut flowers. Does not generally set seed. Prefers well-draining soil in full sun, but tolerates partial shade. Also tolerant of high temperatures, high humidity, high wind, drought, acidic to alkaline soils, and is pest free. Makes a dramatic statement anywhere in the landscape!
