    Product Description

    This is your forever ornamental grass—it lasts so long in the garden. It'll bloom from mid to late summer with long, graceful flower spikes that shine in the sunlight and dance in a breeze. If you need graceful filler for your arrangements, you'll be able to use this through summer and fall. It also dries nicely—leave it in the garden for winter interest or extend its long vase life even further. Fountain Grass is so called for its habit, rising up and spilling over like a fountain, and it can feature in the landscape just like one, the center of a circular display. You can also group it along a border, it grows quickly and easily. Rarely bothered by hungry deer. Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Fox Trot'
