Not All Grass is Green

Looking for a beautiful planter centre piece or focal point plant? Try growing a variety of Pennisetum, commonly called Fountain Grass.

Many gardeners are familiar with Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum a. 'Rubrum') but how about one of the Royal collection? These varieties boast rich, dark purple/ bronze foliage in varying heights to suit any landscape situation or planter arrangement. They are an annual grass that thrives in the heat, becoming darker and more regal in colour as summer progresses.

'First Knight'
A noble stand of the deepest, darkest purple of all.  Thrusting very upright in the centre and arching around the edges, reaching 4+ feet tall.  You will find this particular grass on table D11, while the entire selection of other annual grasses is on table D6.

Looking for something a little newer to try?

Echibeckia is a cross of hardy Echinacea and colourful Rudbeckia resulting in long lasting 3" blooms all summer long!  These beautiful sturdy perennials reach 24" in height and bloom from the summer right into the fall.  Rated for hardiness zone 4, we will be planting one in our garden to see what kind of results we get.  We have Echibeckia Summerina 'Yellow' available.

These are located on the endcap on table F12, out in the perennial section.
