Pennisetum Alopecuroides (Chinensis)
Chinese Fountaingrass

50 Seeds

Native across Asia and Australia, this climping perennial grass can reach up to 120cm tall, with graceful long stems, perfect as a border plant and cut for dried arrangements.

Leaves are narrow, deep green during the summer months and turn to a golden yellow to beige colour from autumn onwards, only around 2cm wide. The flowers are brush-like, silver to pink-white in colour, arching outward from the centre of the clump, almost looking like a fountain spraying water - hence the name! Flowers turn brown and often stay until early winter.

Frost tender, it can withstand temperatures down to -5°C for short periods of time.
