'Hameln' is a smaller variety of fountain grass with three distinctive seasons of stunning displays. Green, fine-textured grass blades up to 3 feet tall are tipped with soft, wheat-shaped seedheads. Foliage turns rust gold in autumn and pale blonde in winter, and is a favorite stopover for birds. A great match for late-season perennials and coloful shrubs in the mixed border. (Pennisetum alopecuroides)

Plant Information

Hameln is one of the best small Fountain Grasses, reaching only about three feet. This beauty is useful in full sun or partial shade.

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.

Ornamental Grasses provide texture, uniqueness, and beauty that will set off your favorite blooming flowers. Not only a dynamic element to your garden, Ornamental Grasses are extremely easy to grow, maintain, and will provide additional interest by evolving in seasons while the rest of your garden may be resting.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
