Desert Plains Fountain Grass

  • 100% money-back guarantee
  • Free shipping on all orders over $90
  • Now is the perfect time to plant!
Container Size

PLEASE NOTE: Plants shipped in fall/winter may arrive with discolored or no foliage. Deciduous perennials lose their leaves or foliage during winter and may appear "lifeless", but will burst out with new growth in spring!

  • Desert Plains Fountain Grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Desert Plains') emerges in spring with green blades that take on a arching habit before its smoky-purple bottlebrush flowers appear in early summer. As the long lasting plumes dry to a beautiful wheat, foliage changes to shades of bronze and gold. Desert Plains Fountain Grass is perfect for any sunny spot that needs a long lasting dose of mid to late season color. Be sure to cut some tassels for your inside bouquet and leave the rest on the plant for winter garden interest.

  •  Shipping Methods

    Orders will be shipped via FedEx Home Delivery.

    Orders are generally in route for 2-5 business days (depending on where you live).

    We are sticklers about packaging and shipping your order in a way that guarantees healthy plants upon arrival. If plants are damaged on arrival, just let us know and we'll send you new ones or offer a full refund.

    All of our plants are container grown and shipped with the soil and roots fully intact. We DO NOT ship your plants bare-root. Being shipped as a containered plant greatly reduces the risk of the plant not surviving the transit to your home.
