'Red Head' Fountain Grass stands out as one of the earliest-flowering fountain grasses. 'Red Head' dazzles with bottlebrush plumes that emerge burgundy red in mid-to-late summer. Soft, fuzzy plumes shift to a silvery hue in fall and remain in place throughout winter. Flowing, ribbon-like grass blades adds texture and motion throughout the seasons, with leaves taking on yellow highlights in autumn. An excellent cut flower, fresh or dried. (Pennisetum alopecuriodes)
