Pennisetum Desert Plains Grass

Desert Plains Pennisetum grass is a large fountain grass that makes a beautiful garden focal point. Beginning the growing season with basic green blades of grass, this Prairie Winds Series Pennisetum alopecuroides soon turns on the charm as the summer moves on. 

Bottlebrush shaped flower plumes open with a dusky purple color aging to tan. Vase shaped clumped soon has the Desert Plains green Pennisetum foliage turning shades of red, orange and golden fall tones. 

This Pennisetum is an excellent performing ornamental grass. Great winter interest. Good choice for controlling erosion on hillsides or embankments. The Desert Plains Pennisetum needs good drainage and does not tolerate wet soil. 

Growing up to 4 feet tall with a spread of 3 to 4 feet wide, space your Desert Plains Pennisetum approximately 3 to 4 feet apart.
