Description
The perennial fountain grasses are a prized group for landscaping accents, and they live up their name. They are mound-forming creating a fountain-like focal point wherever they grow, with a spectacular bloom in midsummer.

Fireworks is no exception- its eye-catching, bright pink color truly puts on a show in the garden.

Fireworks adds dramatic effect in perennial gardens, general landscaping, or wildflower meadows. A great ornamental grass!

Comments about Variegated Purple Fountain Grass Fireworks:

I have 2 of these in pots on my deck - I live in a condo. They make a beautiful, unusual addition to my deck and they look lovely from the sidewalk - I am on the 2nd floor. I would definitely recommend these to anyone wanting a splash of color on their deck that isn't the typical flowering plant.
