Cassian Fountain Grass – Pennisetum alopecuroides

December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >


One of the best dwarf Fountain Grasses for the Houston area. Nice tight clumps of narrow green foliage topped with creamy-white fox-tail flowered heads in summer that mature into a creamy tan. Averages 1′-2′ tall. Normally has great orange fall color. One of the best Pennisetums for the South. Sun. Moist, well-drained soil.
