Looking for a beautiful planter centrepiece or focal point plant? Try growing a variety of pennisetum, commonly called Fountain Grass.
Many gardeners are familiar with Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum a. 'Rubrum') but how about one of the Royal collection? These varieties boast rich, dark purple/ bronze foliage in varying heights to suit any landscape situation or planter arrangement. They are an annual grass that thrives in the heat, becoming darker and more regal in colour as summer progresses.
