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!

  • Red Head Fountain Grass (Pennisetum advena Redhead) is a marvelous ornamental grass for smaller gardens, but also looks fabulous as a mass planting. The upright, green foliage arches twoards its tips and is is topped by deepest purple, cat-tail like plumes, creating a magnificent contrast with the leaves. But the show's not over yet! In fall, the foliage turns to gold and the plumes ripen to a rich, wheat color. It also blooms a little earlier in the fall than most ornamental grasses and maintains its form through the winter.

Good looking plants

The plants arrived healthy and very damp. They have done nothing but thrived since their unboxing. They also showed up as promised on time. Great service overall.

Red head fountain grass limited!

I have planted these 3 yrs in a row as in NE CO they cannot survive the winters here. I did a search and that’s what all the sites said they cAnnot survive - they suggest you dig them up and store them where it doesn’t get below freezing for the winter. Too much work! I love these so I only plant in containers that I can move into garage

That does depend on your zone, some of Norther CO is a zone 3 or 4 which is far too cold for this grass. Putting them in a container loses a zone but also allows you to move them into an unheated garage which may be enough to help them over the winter. They are so beautiful and worth the work to some who want them in colder zones. :)

Red Head Fountain grass

When I got my order from the Greenhouse, my grass was packaged great, It already had 4 blooms on it. I watered it and let it set outside over night and planted it the next morning. It is already getting another bloom on it. I am so very happy with my order. I will definitely order from the Greenhouse again! Thank You for the care you put into your plants. Jackie.

Love my redheads

The Red Head Fountain grass arrived quickly and in beautiful condition. They have been in the ground a couple weeks and blooming already. Very impressed with the way they were packed. I am very pleased. Hope to buy a couple more when they are back in stock.
