Purple Fountain Grass is among the most prized ornamental grasses, celebrated for its soft rosy plumes and maroon foliage. Nodding flower spikes arch gracefully away from the upright foliage, providing elegant architecture and a dramatic accent in sunny beds. Gorgeous as a focal point in containers, when massed in flowing waves through the landscape, or planted in clusters for big impact. The ruby plumes make stylish cut flowers, fresh or dried. Perennial in zones 9-10, grow as an annual in all other zones. Will not reseed. (Pennisetum setaceum)
