Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Piglet'

Fountain Grass

Mounds of narrow green foliage are topped in late summer by fluffy, bottlebrush-like, tawny plumes making them look like little fountains. Cute for edging or containers. Shorter than Hameln and finer textured. Plant patented.

Cut back early in spring before new growth resumes.
