tall x 24-36" wide. Karley Rose is probably the most famous of the
Fountain Grasses, due to its lovely plumes, which reach peak height in midsummer
and persist into the fall. This beauty is useful in full sun or partial shade.
Karley Rose adds dramatic effect in perennial gardens, landscaping, or
wildflower meadows. 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, structure, 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 dormant. Cut back foliage to the ground in late winter or spring
before new growth emerges.
