More Information

Description Prairie Winds® 'Lemon Squeeze' fountain grass (Pennisetum alopecuroidesputs) puts a twist on the classic look of fountain grasses. It boasts vibrant gold and chartreuse leaves from spring to fall! Many gold-foliage grasses burn in full sun, but not Prairie Winds® 'Lemon Squeeze'. It shines, making your sun garden even brighter.

In late summer, copper flower spikes appear above the foliage. Leave the foliage and flowers standing for winter interest and coverage for wildlife, or cut some to use in dried flower arrangements. It's easy to grow, deer resistant, and durable, making it a great option for every gardener.
Details Botanical name: Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Lemon Squeeze’
Common name: Fountain grass
Patent #: PPAF
Zone: 5,6,7,8,9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hrs/day)
Height x width: 3-4′ tall X 4-5′ wide
Flower color: purple, turning tan in fall and winter
Foliage color: Green and gold
Season of interest: Year-round
Uses: Background, border, cottage gardening, foundation planting, massing, specimen, cut flower garden
How To Grow Soil: Any well-drained soil will do.
Light: Performs best in full sun. Can tolerate part sun, but may not produce as many flowers.
Water: Average. Once established, it will tolerate a bit of drought, but flowers better, and develops better color, if provided with a deep watering during periods of extended drought.
Spacing: 3-4′
Fertilizing: Does not require fertilizer, but if desired you can apply a small amount of all purpose garden fertilizer in spring. Be sure to water it in thoroughly.
Winterizing: We recommend leaving foliage in place over winter, as ornamental grasses contribute substantial interest in otherwise dormant landscapes. This practice also helps minimize the potential for rot in cold, wet soils – particularly in areas with clay soil.
Maintenance & pruning: Prune down to 3-4″ above soil level in late winter or early spring, before new growth emerges.

Love Lemon Squeeze!

I was inspired by Prairie Winds Lemon Squeeze to plant a new grass boarder in July 2023! I purchased Lemon Squeeze along with 3 other varieties! They are all growing extremely well and looking great together!
But Lemon Squeeze is stealing the show! I will be adding more Lemon Squeeze to my other grass boarders next Spring!

Thriving and already blooming!

This ornamental grass exceeded my expectations in terms of appearance and performance. Thriving in a full-sun location with regular watering for a little over 2 months, this grass already has full size blooms that are substantial in size and a really unique color. I'm looking forward to seeing how the plant winters-over. If you want the texture of a grass but want something other than green, give this one a try.
