Bamboo & Grasses

Pennisetum setaceum


Pennisetum setaceum ’Rubrum’ also known as Purple Fountain Grass. A striking perennial grass that needs to be treated like an annual. Leaves, stems and flower racemes are all a striking purple colour, with the seed heads fading in colour as they age. Forms a dense clump with leaves arching over, which is complimented well by the upright flower racemes which are formed from June and last throughout the Summer months. The seed heads can be dried for flower arranging. Position: best grown as a container plant for the patio, but can also be a useful addition to Summer border planting. Prefers full sun, but will thrive in light shade. Avoid waterlogged soil. Price from £8.50 approx. If you wish to buy this item, please contact us on 0207 3525656 or email to
