Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Puppy Love' PP30973 (30)ct Flat
Common Name: Fountain Grass, Ornamental Grass
This seedling of 'Ginger Love' has the same intermediate height as its parent, but with noticeably darker seed heads. Its graceful, arching habit has medium to dark green foliage with burgundy accents. The darker red inflorescences begin to show color in late summer and continues until frost. Since this is not a sterile variety, make sure to deadhead seed heads so they don't seed around.
Pennisetum prefers to be grown in rich loamy soil with good drainage and full sun or light shade. However, it will grow in rocky or sandy soil as long as it remains fairly moist. This grass resents having "wet feet".
