An early form of red flowering Pennisetum featuring large very soft bottle-brush flowers. Deep purple buds mature to smokey red-purple flowers that that can measure 3" wide by 8-10" long appear in mid to late summer.

Care:

Low maintenance like other ornamental grasses but Pennisetum prefer a rich loamy soil and good drainage is important - resents "wet feet". They will do okay in light shade but full sun is best.

Other Attributes:
Groundcover Deer Resistant
Good cut flower Dries well
Long season interest
