Plant Features

The Red Head Pennisetum (Fountain Grass) Plant, pronounced al-oh-pek-yur-OH-id-eez, is also known as Redhead Fountain Grass. It is called Red Head because this amazing Fountain Grass has the most gorgeous, enormous, soft plumes that are a light smoky-red. Blooming early in mid-to late summer, the plumes are great for cut flower arrangements if cut soon after they appear. These amazing plumes can be a 3-inches wide and can grow to be 8-10-inches long! When in full bloom, a single specimen or a mass planting is absolutely spectacular!

Red Head Pennisetum

This was my first online plant purchase and I could not be any happier. I bought 3 of the Red Head Pennisteum. They arrived in a very timely manner and were alive and healthy. Not to mention they were a great price! I will definitely be coming back next spring/fall to purchase more when we landscape in our backyard. Thanks so much GrowJoy!
