Add Texture & Movement with this Compact Ornamental Grass

The Grass, 'Dwarf Fountain Grass', Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln', is a great grass for a specimen or in mass plantings.

The leaves are narrow and arch.  The seed-heads resemble bottle brushes which are a rose copper bristly head. It truly gives a fountain like appearance. The mature flowers last until winter freezes shatter the seed heads!  It is only 2' tall.

Ornamental Grasses are gaining in popularity all over the U.S. due to their undemanding nature and long lasting, year round beauty. There is nothing that adds such interesting forms, textures and movement to a garden, than with this diverse plant group.

They can be planted along banks of ponds, incorporated into perennial gardens, grouped together, utilized as a ground cover along walkways, paths or on steep banks.

They aren't fussy about soil requirements, are drought tolerant as well as insect and disease resistant. Dwarf Fountain prefers full sun and well drained-soils. If planted in partial shade, little or no flowering will occur.

Ornamental Grass Fan Review by Franny
Put one in a container & one around my pool. I am sold on ornamental grasses. They are SO easy to grow! I put some larger grasses on either side of these dwarf fountain. Looks awesome.
Easy to care for Review by Nickie
Grasses are so easy to care for. All I do is cut them back in the spring and watch for the rest of the year.
Low maintenance Review by Mary ME
Plant, water, and walk away. And I still get beautiful plant.
Fall color Review by Wendi55
When the sun shines on the rose colored seed heads in the fall, they just shimmer. Very colorful.
Low maintenance Review by Jerome
Ornamental grasses such as the dwarf fountain grass are about the only plants that I plant anymore. Getting old has something to do with that because I do not have to care for these plants very much. Add an little water and cut them back in the spring. That is easy.
