Pennisetum Red Head is a showy Ornamental Grass for the sun garden.

Red Head does not seed like other grasses.

Huge, 10" long smoky purple flowers start to flower already in summer where most Pennisetums flower in early fall.

Pennisetums thrive in full sun and well drained soil. Once established they take on the punching heat & humidity effortlessly.

In fall the green foliage turns a straw colored gold. Grows up to 48" and 36" wide. Red Head adds a colorful texture to garden designs and provide a pleasing backdrop to  fragrant Coneflowers, long-blooming KnockOut Roses, & drought-proof Sedums!

Special Features: Cut Flower, Deer Resistant, Dried Flower, Drought Tolerant, Easy Care, Fall Color, Heat Tolerant, Long Blooming, Multi-seasonal Interest, Season Extender, Winter Interest
