More Information

Description Karley Rose' Fountain grass (Pennisetum orientale) brings five months of color, texture, and motion to your sun garden. Smokey-pink flower spikes arch gracefully over green foliage and sway in the breeze. The flowers are unbelievably long-lasting for a grass, starting in early summer and lasting well into fall. Worry less knowing this grass is easy to grow and deer resistant! Once established, they effortlessly take on heat, humidity & punishing sun. Try planting it where plumes are backlit by morning or late afternoon sun for extra appeal! Details Botanical name: Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose'

Not so easy

The came packaged wonderfully. Waited 24 hr to plant outside. They receive 6ish hr of sunlight, only 4 have survived out of 6. I am going to contact Great Garden Plants to see about a refund for the 2 that died.

Fantastic

I planted 3 of these in a triangle shape in May 2021 looking to get impact from planting multiples. I've ordered from Great Garden Plants before and knew the size and quality of the plants I would be receiving. When I put them in the ground I thought if I get some decent growth on them this year, I'll be happy and I'm sure they would fill out over the years and I would eventually get the look I was going for. It's now mid September 2021 and these plants have put on some amazing growth for their first year. They have filled out very nicely and have so many flower spikes. I ended up getting the look I wanted in the first season. Very pleased.
