Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Red Head'

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Red Head'

Fountain Grass

'Red Head' Fountain Grass has huge smoky burgundy bottlebrush seedheads above wide green leaves. Earlier blooming than 'Moudry' and showier. Selected by Brent Horvath from seedlings of P. 'National Arboretum'. It really turns heads when in bloom, and the winter foliage is attractive.

PRN Preferred: The huge seedheads sport very showy shades of burgundy and black before turning tan in late fall.
