Hameln Dwarf Fountain Grass is wonderful for small spaces, If offers narrow green leaves that form finely textured mounds of foliage.

Happy and Healthy Plant

I put this fountain grass in the ground and it began to grow immediately. I gave the plant good soil and some water and it took off. I have not been unhappy with any purchase from Grow Joy. Buy with confidence.

Hamelin Dwarf Pennisetum

These little Pennisetum grasses grew nicely their first year in our new Alpine Garden. We sure do look forward to seeing them this summer with their little seedheads waving in our mountain breeze! Thank You, GrowJoy for these miniature grasses that are the perfect size for our garden!

Easy care and attractive

If you like fountain grasses, this is a very easy grass to maintain. I planted it in clay/sand amended with compost, 1-2 months ago. I only kept it moist the first thing since then, I just let nature do the job. This fountain grass is short and has made a nice backdrop for white vincas. The rabbits who voraciously munch in back/front yards leave this alone (they even eat my pink muhlys!) I would buy more of the Hameln Dwarf without hesitation.
