More Information

Description Everyone loves ornamental grasses for their soft texture and dynamic movement in the garden. 'Hameln' fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroides) brings lovely soft fluffy plumes to your garden on top of all the other great features of ornamental grass. They look delightful in the landscape as well as in a vase, both fresh and dried. Its green fountain of foliage transitions to a rich gold hue in fall and continues to add lovely texture well into winter, making this grass a multi-season stunner. 'Hameln' makes a striking border, and its dwarf size makes it perfect for a variety of landscapes, big or small. It loves full sun and readily tolerates drought, as well as occasionally wet soil. Plus, it's low maintenance and resists damage from deer and rabbits, too, making it perfect for gardeners of any skill level. Details Botanical name: Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln'
Common name: Dwarf fountain grass
Zone: 5-9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 18-24" X 18-24"
Flower color: White
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer- Fall
Uses: Accent, alpine and rock, container gardening, edging, erosion control or embankment, ground cover, massing, ornamental, rock garden, slopes, small spaces, under planting.
How To Grow Soil: Easily grown in average, medium to wet soil
Light: Full sun to part-sun. Best in full sun. Tolerates part sun, but may not flower in too much shade.
Water: Medium. Once established, will adapt to poorer soils with occasional drought. Occasional deep watering is needed during periods of drought in summer to keep the foliage from rolling and twisting, and it is common to see the tips of the foliage turn brown during these times.
Spacing: 18 - 24 inches
Fertilizing: Small amounts of fertilizer are needed for ornamental grasses. Too much fertilizer will increase the nitrogen level and that can lead to lodging or flopping over. The best time for applying fertilizer is in the spring, just as growth is resuming. About one -quarter cup, per item, of a 10-10-10 slow release fertilizer is enough to take care of the plant needs throughout the entire summer.  For best results, make sure you thoroughly water in the fertilizer.
Winterizing: Can leave foliage standing for winter. Shear the dead portions back to 3-4 inches above the ground by late March to allow the new growth to emerge unhindered.
Maintenance & Pruning: About every 3-4 years, propagate by division of the clump into several pieces in early spring (after shearing the dead foliage away) and discard the center of the clump (and any other peripheral portions which have died).

Still growing?

The grasses I purchased have not grown to 24” tall or wide. I’m hoping that they are not done growing this year and for better results from them next year.

Hello! When transplanting young plants from a nursery pot to a garden, the plant allocates more energy to root development instead of shoot development (above ground). It's important for them to develop a robust root system so they can actually absorb the nutrients and water in the soil around them. Then after their root system is more developed they'll invest in their shoots development. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. We hope this helps. Happy Gardening!

Hamelin fountain grass

The plants arrived golden brown , I transplanted them and watered according to the directions. I have given them a lot of attention and have come to the conclusion that they are truly dead and probably were upon arrival I would like my money back I ordered one Hamelin grass from Amazon and it arrived in good health and it was green. I transplanted it and it is doing well. The grasses you sent me were probably dead at the time of packaging . This is not a good way to conduct business. This is my honest feed back , Patsy B
