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.

Fantastic

Red Head Fountain Grass

Plant came quickly and was moist and green. I planted it 2 days later with the root fertilizer and can say now that it is doing well and showing quite a bit of growth. I do feel like the price was a bit on the high side for this size and type of perennial. That’s the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

Red Head Fountain Grass

These plants arrived in excellent condition. They were planted about four days after reception, and so far they seem to be thriving. I am confident that they will continue to do well and become a prominent feature in my garden.
