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.
