More info

A large prolific rusty red colored grass which produces fuzzy elongated flower atop a long stem in Summer/ Fall.  Very easy to grow.  Cut back once or twice a year to keep foliage coming back nice and tight.  Red Fountain Grass is used as an annual in colder climates but in Southern California can last several seasons as a perennial.  If blooms are left on, plant will re-seed.  Pennisetum grows fast and can tolerate poor soils and drought making it desirable for the gardener with a brown thumb but still wishes to have ornamental grasses.  For a slightly smaller variety, look at Pennisetum 'Fireworks' as an alternative cultivar.  Best in USDA Zones 9-10.
