Karley Rose is probably the most famous of the Fountain Grasses, due to the lovely rose-colored plumes, which rise up to three feet in midsummer, and then persist into the fall. This beauty is useful in full sun or partial shade. Karley Rose adds dramatic effect in perennial gardens, general landscaping, or wildflower meadows. A great ornamental grass!
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.
